8.7

I believe it is my first wine of the 2015 vintage, and if the rest of the vintage will deliver such pleasant wines, we are off to a good start. This NZ SB, is more on the grassy side then on the tropical one, yet it is nice and fresh. Light green color, nose of kiwi, green grass, fresh cut grass, lime and grapefruit, medium body with crisp acidity and a fresh finish. Pleasant wine. My score 87, drink to 2019

Very crisp and refreshing. Pairs nicely with a 18 mo aged tomme - very good. Earthy burnt kind of taste. Rich. Crunchy kind of texture

Goatmilk blue Brie - not the best thing I’ve had, a little bitter
