This attractive, fragrant blend is named as a tribute to great-aunt Ottilie Mathilde ‘Tilly’ Henschke, one of the many remarkable women of the era where daily life was a far cry from the ease of today. Grape varieties: 50% Sauvignon Blanc 15% Semillon 14% Pinot Gris 13% Riesling 8% Chardonnay.
Brilliant, pale straw-gold with lime-green hues. Attractive, fragrant aromas of guava, white nectarine, yellow apple and gooseberry, with floral hints of white petals and clover blossom, and underlying notes of sherbet, lemon curd and lime leaf. The textural palate is full of rich stone-fruit and apple flavours, with hints of nashi pear, white currant, mint and lime leaf, supported by a ripe citrus acidity. A wine that shows excellent shape and balance as well as a long, lingering and flavourful finish. Fermented in tank and bottled post-vintage to preserve the wine’s fragrant characteristics.
Pair with grilled lemongrass chicken.
Tasting Note: Exhilarating blend of gooseberry and capsicum flavours over ripe tropical fruit, with crisp acidity.
