Russell scored this wine: 88/100

Very smooth, much more complex than anticipated. Rated at 88 by Nat, but seems higher than that

Light straw green colour; aromas and flavours of peach with floral and earth tones; dry, light to medium bodied, with good length. (LCBO). Good pairing with fish, shellfish, ham, pasta, chicken and cold pork, lamb and beef.
