    Almost as smooth, oaky, and balanced as the Rombauer but with more discrete flavors.

    (2005 Vintage) Pale lime colour. Light floral fragrance with hints of lime and lemon. Brisk and fresh in the mouth with zesty lime all the way. Tangy taste and lively acidity with relatively austere finish. Has the backbone to develop with some time in the bottle.
