Pale yellow tinged with green; a clean, concentrated floral nose reminiscent of elder and acacia flower with a hint of sage; ripe citrus fruits, gooseberry and mineral flavours on the palate leading to zesty, ripe acidity on the finish. Makes an excellent partner for asparagus frittata, grilled prawns, oriental stir fries, scallops with fresh herbs, goat's cheese, fish, especially zander or pike in butter sauce.

Wine EnthusiastMore exuberant than past vintages, this opens with tropical fruit aromas and a whiff of tomato vine. The generous palate doles out ripe honeydew melon, passion fruit and pink grapefruit flavors with fresh acidity. A candied nectarine note closes the finish.

Wine SpectatorBright and expressive, with aromatic passion fruit and chive blossom notes augmenting peach and pink grapefruit zest flavors. Light-bodied, presenting a clean-cut, juicy finish.
