Taste profile from the winemaker: "Light yellow in color with green hues and brilliant clarity. A distinctive Marlborough bouquet of ripe tropical and citrus fruit. Bursting with flavours of lemon, passionfruit and melon. Crisp and zesty, the palate has excellent weight and balance, lingering in a full, refreshing finish."

ABC Wines review: The aromas of this wine are reminiscent of the fresh outdoors with a clean, citrusy scent. The initial tartness of the flavors is balanced by more grassy than fruity notes with just a bit of mineral crispness. The finish is dry and slightly acidic. Not among the best from this region, but very good nonetheless. Our score: Above average to Excellent.
