Bright, pale yellow. Brisk scents of pineapple, lemon, anise and fresh herbs. Vibrant but supple too, with pineapple and lemon zest flavors complicated by some spiciness from 30% barrel fermentation and a bit of lees aging. Offers very good palate presence and finishes pure, firm and persistent. This brisk wine offers excellent cut but does not come across as austere. (13% alcohol)

Aromas of grass, grapefruit and herb lead to a crisp citrus flavor on the full-bodied palate. These tones carry on the finish.

Lively lime and kiwifruit flavors finish on a clean, snappy accent. Drink now. 45,000 cases made.
