"A bright and breezy, barefoot and wind-in-the-hair style of wine that captures the essence of summer drinking. The varietal aromas of cut grass, green apples and tropical fruits are all there, plus the succulence of citrus and exotic tropical fruit juices..."

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale lemon in colour with bright green hues.
Fresh smells of cut grass in summer with a backdrop of tropical fruits and a hint of citrus. Pure and clean, good intensity of lift but not heady.
Palate Is relatively tight and focused highlighting more of the citrus spectrum up front following with a medium length of passionfruit and guava. Citrus shows through again on the finish complementing the sweeter tropical fruits. A drier style; delicate, luscious and fresh.
