Lemon zest, gooseberry, star fruit, wet stone and a gray balance between fruit and acidity.

I was completely wrong about this wine. It's really good. Refreshing and crisp, not too green not too fruity. Nide.

Nose is wet stone, grass, tropical fruits, lemon zest. Long lasting acidity on the finish. Big grapefruit, lime, stone fruits on the palate. Good expression of marlborough sauv blanc.

Clean and pleasantly grassy. Not overly concentrated with lingering lime peel notes.
