"This minerally white is light-bodied and tangy, with snappy acidity framing flavors of star fruit, anise, Marcona almond and pink grapefruit granita. Drink now through 2019. 900 cases made.?AN " (WS)

"Bright golden yellow. Rich aromas and flavors of pineapple, stone fruit and spicy herbs. Clean, fresh and lush, with a ripe tactile mouthfeel persisting nicely on the juicy finish. Oak aged (roughly 60% is aged in large 20hL oak barrels and 40% in once used barriques)." (VM)

"Beautiful aromas of grapefruit and papaya follow through to a full body. Layered and delicious. Exotic and fruity. A broad and rich white. Drink now. " (JS)

"Aromas of toast, oak and yellow flower lead the nose. Aged in large casks and barriques, the linear, if somewhat lean, palate offers golden apple and lemon zest alongside tangy acidity." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Rich golden yellow in colour. Intense, lingering bouquet; scented with wild flowers, ripe fruit and almonds. A beautifully structured wine which will reach its peak after several years in bottle.
