Refreshing and crowd pleasing! Aromas of lemon, lime and golden apple. Medium bodied and medium + acidity. Crisp and clean on the finish. Enjoy with any seafood, white fish, or chicken.

Tasted June 16th, 2018. Colour yellow gold. Legs medium. Aromas and flavours of, Meyer lemon, lime peel, yellow apple, hints of lemon curd. Taste dry, medium plus body, some mouthwatering, medium finish. A crowd pleaser easy to drink, good value and a nice match to fresh boiled lobster dinner.
