The winery writes "Fresh, zesty, juicy and full, this fruit-driven new world style wine will excite the senses without the racy overload. Tropical fruit with a fresh herbaceous character balanced with zesty passionfruit and a dry finish. A crisp refreshing wine, that shows the true terroir characters of the soils and area it comes from.”
Sam Kim writes "Fresh and gorgeously lifted, the bouquet shows Granny Smith apple, rockmelon, fig and kaffir lime notes, leading to a powerfully expressed palate offering excellent varietal purity and persistency. Wonderfully flavoursome and highly enjoyable."
Wine Spectator writes "Strikes a terrific balance between mouthwatering acidity, fresh herbal notes of lemon verbena and thyme, and core flavors of Key lime, Meyer lemon, pineapple and tangerine. Gains momentum on the finish, where the flavors sing in harmony and complexity."
