Wine Description

Austere, dry wine with lovely minerality plus lemon grass, wild herb and a hint of tropical fruit. Good food wine. Impressive fruit purity and power. Tight, long, and with an ethereal texture.

    light but with some tropical hints on finish. Typical gooseberry nose. Good aperitif

    Very pale straw-yellow. Sexy, pure aromas of soft citrus fruits, grapefruit and lemon oil, accented by peppery herbs. Dense, sweet and supple, with lovely lift and spicy high notes to the lemon, grapefruit and pineapple flavors. A broad, fruit-driven style of sauvignon with a light touch-and distinctly polite for this bottling, showing neither the outstanding intensity and grip of the best recent vintages nor the pronounced herbaceous character of the more difficult years. But this is harmonious ...

    Tangerine, mango and citrus flavors are pure and focused, smooth, round and wonderfully refreshing, with peach, Key lime pie, mineral, and floral elements that really take off on the finish. Drink now.
