Winemaker's Notes

Pale to medium straw with vibrant green hues. Good intensity, ripe fruit, apple and ripe lemon, rich but refined flavours.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright, pale yellow. Cool aromas of citrus peel, gooseberry, licorice and pepper, with a whiff of tropical fruits. Round but dry, with classic, pure varietal flavors of gooseberry and pepper. This dense, textured wine finishes with sneaky length. "
