RATINGS

93The Wine Advocate

...wonderful bouquet – real minerality and poise here...outstanding detail and focus...palate is crisp and defined, struck through with very good acidity...there is a real peacock’s tail of lime, nectarine and apricot toward the persistent finish that makes you want to go back and take another sip.

17+ Jancis Robinson

Nutty and pure...impressively long, with very fine balance of acid and flavour intensity.
