    Brilliant water like core with a distinct tinge of green to the edges. Intense lime, lemon and granny smith apple scents jump out of the glass followed by chalky talc and steely mineral notes. Racy lemon and lime fruits have a crunchy feel backed by snappy acidity. Granny smith apple, wet steel and flinty mineral characters lie beneath. Finishes dry and taut with an exceptionally long, mouth watering aftertaste.
    Drink over the next 5-6 years.

    Other Reviews….
    Wallflower indeed. The bouquet is full of high-pitched citrus and wild flower aromas, the palate beating a tattoo of drums with its intensity and insistent length. The name suggests it's a shy and unassuming wine, and I totally disagree with that. The value offered needs no comment. Drink by 2030.
