Screw cap. This has a fairly generous nose featuring citrus, green apple, white flower and lemon oil aromas. On the ripe medium-to-full bodied palate, this has appealing lemon oil, citrus, and orchard fruit flavours. Some herbally notes add complexity as it warms in the glass. Fresh, crunchy, and balanced acids offer nice texture. Hints of stony mineral come through on the mid-palate and on the long, juicy finish. Tasted Mar/2018. Score: 88+ pts

I'll keep the rating unanimous! I'm fan of this varietal, and this is a fresh and food-friendly example. Perfectly pleasant to drink, but I wanted a bit more character, especially on the aromatic side.
