Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pretty, fragrant, and great balance. Aromas of lemon grass, passion fruit and a hint of minerality. Light, creamy texture on the palate with medium acidity, and lots of tropical and citrus notes. Enjoy with rich seafood dishes.
Winemaker's Note - Aromas of citrus and lemon grass with light tropical notes and lovely minerality on the palate. Long finish.

Grapes picked early October. 50% full cluster pressings & 50 % destemmed. Cold soaked for 12 hours. 50% wild ferment in Acacia barrels and 50% stainless steel.
