Tasting Notes

An attractive apricot color with golden peach hues. Very aromatic on the nose with tropical fruit, floral and vanilla notes. The palate is pleasantly refreshing with a lasting juicy finish.

– Tariro Masayiti

A creamy, flavorful white with sliced apples and peaches and some crushed stones. Medium-to fullbodied,
round and delicious. Not the most complex white, but satisfying. Drink now.
