Fruity aromas of melon and apricot.
Bold, stone-fruit flavours – think cumquat and apricot with a rich textured mid-palate and a pleasant creamy rice and nutty spiciness to clean up the finish.
Great food pairing alongside spice filled dishes like curry, Thai dishes and your favourite Malaysian cuisine. Has some pleasing acidity to cut through cream style sauces or deep intense favours like teriyaki and sukiyaki sauces. Try with cheese too.
