Medium bodied, with ripe, luscious pear flavours carried by refreshing mineralIity and zesty mouthwatering acidity. Mixed together create a perfect white to match with food.

Intense straw yellow with a golden tinge. A nose of ripe yellow fruit, mandarin and a hint of liquorice and saffron. True varietal expression on the palate while initially a little neutral. Full bodied, soft mandarin fruit with a salty finish. (WS)

Wine Spectator (2011)89 pts

Notes of baked apple and peach pie mix with accents of almond extract, fennel seed, fleur de sel and crystallized honey in this rich white, which features a backbone of bracing acidity. Drink now through 2019.

James Suckling (2015)93 pts

This is fantastic white with dried peaches, pears and apples. Full and so spicy — almost burning with it! Then it all turns bright. So well done. This rocks it. Beats chardonnay and sauvignon fatigue. Drink now.
