Sweet, fragrant and floral with gooseberry, melon and citrus blossom; notes of lantana and grassy clover blossom. Juicy, delicious tropical fruit flavours with great texture, length and acid balance, and a crisp finish.

... Enter this gorgeous white blend from Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills fruit that is a blast of lemon flavour lifted with just the right dash of passionfruit and tropical headiness. A real taste of summer. "Tony Love, Adelaide Advertiser, Tony Love (23/OCT/2010)
When this wine sings, its a sign the vintage year will be strong across the board, says Stephen Henschke, and this is right on pitch with a blast of exciting Eden Valley fruit and lemon flavour with a clever little lift of Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc passionfruit and tropicals underpinned by a delicate minerality. It simply tastes really good." Rating 94 - Adelaide Advertiser, Louise Radman (10/NOV/2010)
