Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) The wine is light straw in color with green highlights. Aromas of ripe capsicum, gooseberry and grapefruit dominate with tropical fruit notes apparent. This wine displays full fruit intensity. The ripe capsicum flavors meld well with the gooseberry and supporting mango and passionfruit flavors. A well balanced wine showing the lively, crisp acidity associated with this style.

    (2005 Vintage) Clean, 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.
