Reviews & Accolades
96 points: Pale but bright straw‐green; the bouquet has some fragrant blossom notes that merge into the multilayered palate with its display of white peach, nectarine and fig, then distinctly creamy cashew notes before what can only be described as seductive acidity on the finish. Screwcap. (James Halliday, June 2011)
