Dornier Donatus White 2004

Dornier Donatus White 2004

Swiss International Air Lines Wine Awards 2006 - Seal of Approval
Bronze - International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) 2005
A wine dominated by white fruit on the nose mainly backed up by peach/pear aromas and well complemented by a crisp slight herbaceous character. Well-integrated, light presence of oak evident on the nose provides for a luscious balance between fruit and wood. The palate follows typically the same trend as the nose with fullness, complexity and an excellent roundness on the mid palate followed by a great fresh acidity allowing for a long lasting fruit aftertaste
