There’s no influence of oak and that makes for a fresh and crisp nose of Bartlett pear, ripe white peach, Mandarin orange and lemon.

Suggested pairings include a Waldorf salad, fennel-crusted chicken, goat cheese tart, grilled mahi mahi with passion fruit coulis, pear and blue cheese salad and grilled pork with preserved lemon.
