Wine tasting notes

Pale gold colour. Very delicate floral fragrances mixed with fern underlined by subtle minerality. Very fresh, well-structured and well-balanced. Very pure aromas. Refreshing and straightforward finish.

Really nutty; fresh and clean and quite light but with good length. Intensity builds in the mouth. (JH). When to Drink : 2007 to 2009.

Wine Spectator (2010)88 pts

Nov 2012 - Tightly wound, with keen acidity driving its apple, lime and herb flavors. Shows nice focus and a racy quality, but a tad more ripeness would have elevated this overall.

Burghound (2005)86 pts

A clean, fresh and fruity nose of no pretension leads to round, mellow and direct flavors that possess good energy and an agreeably crisp finish. There is not much depth but for straightforward sipping, this is fine. Drink: now."
