Oysters, Scallops and Chardonnay risotto with a basil cream sauce, Cape line-fish, Cheeses.
Citrus with lanolin, hay and tropical fruits on the bouquet. Also very subtle toasty, brioche notes. The palate is plush on entry, rich and melded yet shows a fine acidity that provides a perfect balance to the wine. A restrained elegance and lingering aftertaste completes the wine.
