#28 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009
The wine is light straw in color with green
highlights. Aromas of ripe capsicum, gooseberry
and grapefruit dominate with tropical fruit notes
apparent. This wine displays full fruit intensity. The ripe capsicum flavors meld well with the gooseberry and supporting mango and passionfruit flavors. A well balanced wine showing the lively, crisp acidity associated with this style.
This wine can be matched with grilled oysters,
barbecued prawns or salmon as well as poached
white fi sh with fresh green salads containing
parsley, pepper or lemon. Mediterranean and Turkish dishes with hummus, olives and feta will also match well. Though made to drink while it is young and vivacious, this wine may be cellared for up to three years to develop further complexity.
