Reviews

“Precise aromatics with a floral note to nashi pear and some more tropical gooseberry and musk aromatics. This wine has texture and structure that is well beyond it’s price point. There is a baseline of tangy gooseberry fruit that’s backed by powdery acidity that gives focus and length to citrus and new season pear. The finish is long and has the slightest savoury note that will underwrite further development over the shorter term” – Patrick Eckel 92 Points
