Lovely precise primary fruit driven wine big on gooseberry, grass and passionfruit. Dry zesty high acid palate. Light bodied with green apple and citrus flavours. Vibrant palate. Sauvignon blanc driven, the wine has seen some time on lees and 20% new oak but I couldn’t detect it!. A lovely summer wine.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
