The wine is pale straw in colour with fine-beaded mousse. The nose is characterised by aromas of ripe tropical fruit and vibrant passionfruit. The palate shows intense stone fruit flavours and is full and textural with a tantalising minerality. This wine shows fantastic equilibrium of concentrated fruit flavours and zesty acidity.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesClean, fruity, pleasant, a bit limited in green pungency but not without reference to sweet grasses, this wine shows hints of fig to go with more obvious smells of melon. It is surprisingly round at the front of the palate but firms up well towards the latter half and finish.
