|TASTING NOTE: The price-quality balance tips wildly in your flavour here. Petrol, mineral and citrus aromas waft from this beautiful, fruit-driven gem. A river of ripe orchard fruit--pear and apple--intertwine with racy tang--white grapefruit, Key lime and soft Meyer lemon--providing a balanced and beautiful mouthful of flavour. This is mid weight with good texture and a long, lip-smacking finish and aftertaste. Pour with grilled or pan-seared fish or seafood. Score - 92 (Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, Oct. 9, 2017)
