Brilliant very pale straw colour with a watery hue. Grassy lemon scents mix with dried herb, asparagus and mineral notes. Zippy unripe passionfruit and lime flavours are intermeshed with some herbaceous grassy characters. Finishes dry and crisp with a light minerality to the aftertaste.

Other Reviews….
Selectiv'-harvested (as clean as hand-picked) from two different sites, each with their own character. There's a lot going on here: citrus and passionfruit on the bouquet, and a palate full of tropical fruits clasped by grapefruit and refreshing acidity. Terrific value. Drink by 2020.
