Brilliant pale straw colour with a distinct ring of green skirting around the edges and a watery hue. Pronounced lime and red apple scents mix with orange blossom, light wet steel and mineral notes. Fresh lemon and lime zest fruits drive the palate, underpinned by steely acidity which gives it a tense feel. Finishes dry with a long, focused aftertaste.

Other Reviews….
“Smith Family Vineyard, Ruchioch block. ’00 plantings, grey sandy loam on shale and limestone, east-west orientation, 465m elevation.”
Interesting style here, and while it’s made the same way as the Watervale and Polish Hill, it’s quite different. Vanilla and white flower perfume, citrus and cider apple, zesty character too, with a fine powdery texture, and a slightly sour-edged finish of fine length. Drink 2021-2027+
