Tasting Notes:
Lifted and focused aromatics of tropical fruits especially passionfruit and ripe white grape notes are balanced with a clean, bright, fruit filled palate with a lengthy finish. Frissonesque is zesty and elegant from the first sniff to the very last sip. Pair with classics like asparagus in season, chèvre, pasta with lemon cream, or seafood. Perfect with a white pizza topped with herbed chicken.

 Great with a frivolous culinary adventure or the simplest of cuisine.

 

Reviews:

"...very white Bordeaux in style – pale straw in colour with a grassy, green plum nose; medium-bodied, crisply dry, gooseberry and green bean flavours with good length.

 "The nose drips with passion fruit, grapefruit, lime, kiwi and a range of tropical fruits on the nose. It’s fresh and lively on the palate with tropical fruits and herbs and all lifted by freshening acidity."
