Natalie's Score: 88/100

Lemon, lime and nettle nose with a mouth-watering acidity that's great for cream sauces or seafood. Medium-bodied and fresh. Pecorino food pairings: oven-baked macaroni and cheese dish, and add some Pecorino cheese. Charming Grilled Chicken Wine

Sarah Emilson rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Youthful and moderate in straw colour, with a nose that is very aromatic and floral with notes of: pears, white peach, salmonberries, apples, canned lychee, white flowers and rainwater. This is a dry wine with medium+ acidity, medium-alcohol and moderate body. Suprisingly, the palate did not present as much flavour as expected after such an aromatic nose. Youthful flavours of apples, Asian pears, white peach flesh, lemon rind, pistachio and white tea; with a slightly bitter tone throughout, and a medium length finish. This is a good quality wine that should be enjoyed now. Refreshing and quaffable; good to drink all on its own or paired with lighter dishes. I tried this with various cheeses (including Pecorino, which was okay), the standouts being the fresh cheeses (such as sheep's milk feta and buffalo mozzarella). Also went very well with the rabbit terrine, hazlenut crackers and a peach chutney.
Pecorino...Is it a cheese? Is it a wine? Actually, it’s both! The name Pecorino is derived from the Italian for “sheep,” which is why the famous sheep’s milk cheese and this wine – whose grapes are favourites for sheep to munch right off the vine – share the moniker. Fragrant pear, apple and banana aromas lead to a soft, sunny, juicy wine with a crisp and clean finish. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Dec. 2012
