James Suckling 92
This has a fresh, lemon and lime nose with a herbal edge, too. The palate has some attractive peaches and lemons, as well as a smooth, fresh, gently herb-tinged finish. Drink now. Screw cap.
A brilliant light hay with green edges.
Fresh green lime juice, lemon sorbet, crisp cucumber aromas with hints of fresh cut lemongrass, fresh jalapeo and jasmine blossom. A subtle saline character reminiscent of Himalaya salt flake and sea spray entwine with mineral wet stone and finger lime zest.
The palate characteristics burst forth with lemon juice and lime zest creating a compelling liveliness. In the mouth, the wine is medium in length displaying yellow peach, watermelon skin and nectarine, with a creaminess that balances the mineral focused backbone, giving a lively lemon sorbet richness. Hints of Muscat flower and cypress pine sap invoke the nearby coastal origin of this wine.
The winemakers recommend that the freshness of the wine is accentuated by freshly shucked oysters with pickled lime zest, spicy laksa soup with smoked tofu and lemongrass or barbecue seared octopus with lime chilli drizzle and Asian coleslaw.
