    SMWS Tasting Notes:

    An all-encompassing nose found us all fully engaged from the word go - lime tree blossom, chamomile oil, primroses, sweet coconut and vanilla popcorn and the fresh bread aroma of some Champagne as a result of the autolysis (when the wine is in contact with the lees). So let's pop the bottle - sweet and sparkling green grape juice, green tea with lemon and a refreshing barrel-aged dry Riesling. Diluted we got aromas of honeysuckle, juice peaches, as well as creamy, zesty key lime pie which was duly followed on the palate by sweet ripe peaches, honeydew melon and lemon verbena vanilla slices.
