Bright gold in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose.

Another solid wine for a good price from Rodney Strong winery

Positives: This wine features light oak, lemon rind, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, cantaloupe and limestone. Medium body with good acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: A touch too sour on the finish

Drink now or in the next 4 years on its own or and pair it with lemon and pepper grilled catfish.

Tasted: 24 June 2014

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5+/10, Total: 17.5/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5+
