Wine Description

(From 2005 Vintage) Brilliant pale, almost water like colour with green film and water like hue. Delicate nose of confectionary, tropical fruit and citrus. The palate flavour profile is light, with hints of confectionary over a delicate citrus background. There is an almost Chablis like quality to the flavour profile and a touch of mineral salts emerging. Clean finish.

Winemaker's Notes

88 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): ...60% Verdejo, 30% Viura, and 10% Sauvignon Blanc... Medium straw-colored, it gives up an expressive perfume of fresh herbs, baking spices, citrus, melon, and floral notes. Round and vibrant on the palate, it has excellent volume, concentration, and focus... an excellent value. (Apr 2010)
