Protea is apparently the national flower of South Africa. The bottle is clear but covered with stenciled white flowers. Very unusual and well done. Silvery gold in color, clear and bright. The nose has pears and slight mint. Light bodied. On the palate, tart apples but also some oranges. Nice texture. moderate finish. This drinks well on its own and will work with lighter foods such as seafood salads. Drink over the next few years.
