Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very pale straw in colour with aromas of green apple, lime, pear with a hint of vanilla. It is full bodied with biting acidity and flavours of lemon, tart green apple and butter. It will pair well with seafood or roasted chicken. Tasted on September 30, 2018.
