Wine Enthusiast

Aromas of honeysuckle, tropical fruit and Mediterranean herbs are front and center on this fragrant white. Crisp and savory, the tangy palate features pineapple, grapefruit and ripe yellow apple alongside a mineral vein of saline.

James Suckling

Plenty of dried lemons, pears, fresh apples, and minerals on the nose. Flowers too, such as daffodils. Similar character showing on the full, layered palate with creamy texture and a fresh, vivid finish. Seriously done, as always.
