Aromas of fresh lime juice, chipped shell & grilled nuts
The wine has a fine, creamy mousse & the palate is fine, pure & long, displaying bright acidity, flavours of granny smith apple and lemon citrus. Overall, a wine of complexity, texture & persistence
A challenging vintage but the viticulture team was able to deal very effectively with issue, through meticulous canopy management & judicious use of organically approved sprays, meaning quality remained strong
