Zesty lime with a hint of melon on the nose. A light effervescence makes this a refreshing pairing with light fish or salads.
Tasted April 2017.

Bright and slight effervescence. Great value. crisp and crowd pleasing. Excellent option for warmer weather and patio gatherings. Dry and well balanced. Tasted April 2017. 87 points.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A light-bodied, lively and crisp easy-drinking White with slight effervescence and notes of Granny Smith apple and lime on both nose and palate. The nose also expresses honeydew notes.

Great on its own, with a light salad, with tempura fried shrimp, or with fish and chips.

Tasted March 2022
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A simple, light and dry "frizzante" with lively lime and citrus flavours. Chill well and find a hammock!
