Displaying a salmon pink blush, the nose of this dry blanc de noir is laden with red fruits- strawberries and raspberries, coupled with a hint of spice. The finish is refreshingly crisp and dry, with red fruits lingering on the palate.

Enjoy on it’s own as an aperitif, or to accompany a variety of seafood dishes such as salmon, seared tuna, prawns and sushi. A wine with which to celebrate summer!
