Grassy, with gooseberry and lime on the nose. Crisp acidity, juicy, with lots of fruit. Fantastic wine for the price.

Very nice wine, at a very nice price. Definitely worth keeping a few on hand. Tasted August 2012.

This review is for the 2012. Pale colour with the slightest hint of green. Fruit bursts onto the schnoz with pear, peach, citrus and tropical aromas. Fruit forward, then distinct minerality and decent acidity. Short to medium length. It ends with a slight bitterness and some alcohol (13.5%!). Not a bad offering and decent value. A workable match for spicy curries. Sept. 2013.
