In Asia # 0110 Jan 2010 - Reviewer Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Intensely grassy, herbaceous aromas with a pleasant pinch of lemon zest. The palate is dry with good intensity of green apple and citrus fruits. Crisp acidity and a clean, refreshing, medium to long finish. Tasted September 2009.

Tasted Nov 2012 - This would be heavenly in India - so clean and green on the nose. In the UK it seems 100% Marlborough. Just off dry with enough fruit in the middle. And pretty good, firm finish. Very good effort.

Grapes were whole bunch pressed and the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks for 35 – 40 days then left to settle for approx 2 months.
