In the glass it's a clear pale gold. On the nose, wisps of honeysuckle overlay baked pineapple, pear, musk and straw aromas. On the palate, notes of zingy lime cordial and burnt sugar meld with citrus pith and stoney minerals. Crisp acid keeps this refreshingly dry, while its time on lees gives pleasing weight, texture and complexity. This is a balancing act between brightness and restraint, making it the perfect accompaniment to delicate savoury flavours like seafood - I like that it’s not trying to be the centre of attention. This is a delicious and refined wine.
"It is a blinder of a wine, packed full of juicy fruit and vibrant Atlantic zing. The new vintage is not dissimilar to last year’s stunner, with generous, zesty, pithy, lemon/lime fruit alongside a ton of salinity. It glides with fantastic vibrancy across the palate, with oodles of compact fruit balanced by a mouth-watering stony/savoury element and a cool finish that crackles with freshness and length. The value on offer here is off the charts."
