Taste profile from the winemaker: "Light green in colour, passionfruit and citrus fruits fill the nose complimented by complexing flint. The palate is filled with tight passionfruit, melon and lemon fruit. This is all kept in check by the distinctive and chalky Marlborough acidity."

ABC Wines review: This wine exhibits pleasant aromas of gooseberry and stone fruit. The palate is fruit-forward and mildly acidic. The mineral crispness extends into the finish which is long and pleasing. This would be a very nice wine to serve with grilled dishes. Our score: Above Average.
