Reviews and Ratings

Jason Solanki rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Mineral, lime aromas that follow through on palate and joined by spicy and herbal notes at mid-palate towards the crisp finish. Off-dry and enjoyable. Tasted June 2012.
A go-to wine. This is a fabulous wine from a stunning vintage at a seriously good price. Alluring aromas of spice and nutty notes mingle with wisps of floral and tropical fruit on the nose. There’s a glorious mouthful of nectarine, peach and ripe pineapple decorated with racy lemon and toasty notes on the palate. Medium bodied with good mouth feel, there’s a lingering, balanced and lip-smacking aftertaste. Score: 4½ (out of 5) Source: Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com
