Brilliant pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Herbaceous cut grass, asparagus and unripe gooseberry aromas are intermeshed with citrus, capsicum and pencily cedar like notes. Intense gooseberry, lime and asparagus flavours are overlaid by herbaceous grassy characters, pencil shavings and subtle capsicum. Rounded mid palate feel finishing dry with crisp acidity. Long fresh savoury aftertaste.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.

Other Reviews….
An understated expression evocative of classic, everyday white Bordeaux, dominated by sauvignon (82%). Steeped, too, in the understanding that this blend takes on authority, complexity and drinkability with a bit of oak (matured in 48% French oak, 25% new). Delicious and exceptional value. Lemon curd, lanolin, greengage and a cooling menthol note meander around a creamy core of cedary oak. I could drink this every day. Drink by 2023.
