Tasting Note: This crowd-pleasing white has a bouquet of exotic lychee-nut and citrus, rose petal and honeysuckle with flavours of lychee, peach, mango and spice.

This wine is an excellent match with fresh fruit and cheeses and especially with recipes that include capsaicin, spices, oriental five spice, or curry.
