James Suckling "Plenty of tangy and fresh fruit with lemon rind, honey and some lime. Medium body. A hint of straw at the finish." (2018 Vintage)
The Winemaker "A brilliant pale gold colour with green tints. Intense white blossom aromas delicately enhanced by hints of lemon. The palate confirms this delightful bouquet, offering a whole range of fruit and floral aromas. Superbly full-bodied. A seductive wine" (2018 Vintage)
