Brilliant water like colour with a faint tinge of green around the outskirts. Herbaceous gooseberry and grassy citrus scents intermix with some asparagus notes. Vibrant ripe gooseberry and subtle passionfruit flavours overlay a back drop of herbaceous grassy characters, asparagus and light mineral. Finishes dry with crisp acidity and a medium to long aftertaste.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.

Other Reviews….
A 52/48% blend. Cultured yeast, 3 months on lees, barrel ferment for 4 months (5% new). Fruitful division of labour exhibited with the grassy, hay notes of semillon intertwined with the exuberant passionfruit pulp, tropical fruit bowl of summery sauvignon blanc. The two marry beautifully, thoughtfully, throughout. Drink by 2026.
