Delicate onion-skin hue. Aromas of lemon curd and poached pear on the bouquet are echoed on the palate. Round and textured with attractive pear drop intensity entwined with hints of toasty complexity. The wine appeared drier and less generous when paired with the dish.

Aromas of boiled sugar and pear drops. The palate is mild and delicate. The wine looked washed out when paired with the food.

White peach and pear skin, very pretty and appealing. Racy acidity with lingering floral aromas on the finish. Pair with food due to the grippy phenolics on the finish. This worked well with the food the floral aroma had a bitter lift on the finish and gave further complexity to the pairing.

Bright fruit with hints of minerality. Subtle honey suckle comes through on the palate with firm acidity and structure. The wine finishes with hints of savoury notes. A good match as the wine develops more personality when tasted with this dish.

Pale straw with pinks, herbal, waxy, straw, ester, medium weight, slight bitterness on finish.

Tropical fruit, guava, coming through, rich and ripe, a warming feel on the palate from the alcohol.
