This wine is a delightful pale straw colour, light and appealing in the glass. If the colour isn’t appealing enough on its own, the aroma certainly gets it over the line. Tamburlaine seems to have a bottle full of pure spring time. Musky notes come forward, with hints of tropical lychees, balanced with mineral, limestone notes take me straight to a warm evening by the beach.

On first sip there are massive (and delectable) hits of sweet lychee balanced with the zingy acid of passionfruit. There is a distinct glycerine feel that coats your mouth with the flavours and holds a lengthy, but soft, finish.

Delicious with crumbly cheese, lamb kebabs, or just as is!
