Winemaker Notes

Upon release the wine has a pale straw color with subtle green highlights.

The wine first has restrained floral aromas of orange blossom and rose petal and then later strong regional and varietal aromas of lime zest appear.

On release, the wine has a fresh lemon-lime flavoured palate with a crisp acid backbone. The finish has a subtle, pleasing minerally character.

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Aromatic and aristocratic, this is dry, steely and mouthwatering in its structure, overflowing with pear, grapefruit, slate and floral flavors that persist on the extensive finish. Drink now through 2018. 448 cases imported.
