Pale lemon with aromas of citrus, tropical fruits, honeysuckle and earthy herbs. On the palate crisp flavors ripe apple, melon, grapefruit and lemon zest, vivid acidity nicely balanced. Long finish ending with a citrus mineral finish. Nice! Tasted this when released and a few years later aged nicely.

Delighted to see this spans a spectrum of fruits. White peach, gooseberry, grapefruit, melon, and finishes with tart guava. Really bright and fresh, with dried green herbs, and quite the lengthy finish. Enjoy!

This 2015 is really shining right now. Crisp and energetic - full of ripe melon, fresh lime, gooseberry and guava. Rosemary and sage. Big acid, big minerality, but a touch of semillon adds a softness to the finish. Crusher!

A crisp and bright style with white grapefruit and green melon fruit and a hint of fresh earth and mineral highlights very light and refreshing leaves the tongue salivating for food. Green fig finish 36+ excellent

Crisp, complex, and not quite worth that price tag.

An old and reliable standby. It's sort of like my friends "meantime gal". Marrage wasn't in the picture but she was fine till he found Miss Right. Cakebread, I guess, is my meantime white.

Crisp, multifaceted including some California peach and white melon notes, intensely concentrated and long finish. A little unexciting but still enjoyable.
