Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2015 vintage shows medium-body, balanced, juicy and mouthwatering. Boasting a complex profile of sugar snap pea, tart lime citrus, kafir lime leaf, and a hint of minerality. Paired well with Belizean fish tacos and tostadas. Tasted Dec 2016. Rated 89/100.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Uber floral on the nose with crisp citrus and green apple acidity and oily texture on the palate. The Fruit flavours are a touch lacking and the finish is long with a stemmy minerality. Tasted Dec 2016 - @sommsosa / bespoketastings.ca
