“Exotic fruit aromas merge with gentle salinity, quince and wild sage. The palate is fresh and fruity, but with a little lees complexity. Succulent stone fruit and mineral finesse add to a general aura of balance, harmony and terroir. Outstanding white and clear reference point for the variety.”
“Bright citrus notes on the nose, reminiscent of freshly squeezed lemon and grapefruit, complemented by herbaceous scents of sage and thyme. Fresh, juicy simplicity on the palate. Attractive, fruit forward finish. Well balanced and well made.”
“Explosive notes of exotic fruit. Some ripe peach and blossom, faint bloom. Beautiful fragrant. Light, pretty, deftly balanced. A touch of brioche cushions the flow of juicy fruit. Instantly recognisable as a fine wine. Very impressive.”
