Taste profile from the winemaker: "Very pale straw in colour with lively hints of green. The nose shows lifted citrus and passionfruit with hints of grass and nettle, leading to a palate of refreshing green tropical fruit and citrus flavours. Early flavour ripening has resulted in a wine with classic, lively flavours and a zesty, natural acidity."

ABC Wines review: A blend of grassy and tropical fruit aromas are presented by this wine. Smooth and creamy on the palate, there is a hint of initial sweetness followed by brisk acidity. The fruit flavors, notably citrus, are, however, somewhat muted on the palate. The finish trails off fairly quickly though a hint of citrus remains. Our score: Above Average.
