    Brilliant very pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. The nose emits aromas of green apple and lime intermeshed with fresh herb infusions and a subtle grassiness followed by some ripe citrus end notes. Quite ripe the palate has lime and green apple flavours intermingling with subtle passionfruit over a background of citrus, fresh herb infusions and a touch of grassy asparagus on the dry finish. Lively acidity with an aftertaste of limes, fresh herbs, citrus, some grassiness and stony mineral.
    Drink over the next 2-3 years.
