Winemaker's Comment:
Bright light red pink colour emphasizes the youth and freshness of this wine. Prominent ripe banana flavours on palate and bouquet that carry forward in a fresh, long fruity off-dry aftertaste.

Enjoy this young wine with fish soup, pâté, delicate smoked fish, barbequed chicken or on its own.
