Reviews and Ratings

David Skinner rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Pale straw colour. Guava, pineapple and passionfruit fragrances. Crisp acidity. Citrus peel, minerality and tropical fruit flavours on the palate. A rich mouthfeel and complexity with a medium long finish that effects the entire tasting experience.

Serve with a scallop ceviche
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Crisp pineapple and citrus notes with a wonderful tropical fruit-citrus blend on the palate. Great acidity throughout leading into a lingering finish. Tasted July 2018.
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Watery-white in colour with aromas of lemon, passionfruit and ripe pineapple. It is light bodied with crisp, mouthwatering acidity and has flavours of passionfruit and lemon with a long finish. This will pair nicely with soft creamy cheeses, seafood and creed salads. Tasted on July 15, 2018.
Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Gooseberry, peach and tropical aromas followed by tart flavours of lime zest,

Lovely sour notes here and medium-bodied feel in the mouth. Would pair great with a summer pea salad or goat cheese.

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

On the nose, there is grapefruit, canteloupe, lime, herbal notes, and petrol. On the palate, there are flavours of grapefruit, lemon, and herbal notes. It is refreshing with bright acidity! It would pair well with appetizers.
