Expert Reviews

Restrained bouquet, barely offering the full gamut of its personality, with slatey minerality and lemons lurking; the palate reveals the complex nature of the wine, with texture the central theme; lemon and mineral palate, fine and focused with a dry, chalky finish to conclude. Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Brilliant, bright and vibrant the wine is pale straw in colour with a youthful green tinge.

Aroma

Intense aromatics of lemon meringue and lime zest are complemented by subtle floral aromatics of jasmine and musk.

Palate

The finely structured palate displays lemon and lime citrus characters with hints of pear and lychee. Fine mineral acidity provides length and structure.

Enjoy with your favourite Spanish tapas such as marinated octopus with chorizo. Or alternatively, enjoy with a lightly spiced Asian dish.
