Bright, Grassy, Spicy, Reductive
|TASTING NOTE: From grapes you can see growing right off the back deck at the estate. Beautiful aromatics of fresh squeezed lemon and lime with subtle herbs and grass notes. It's bright and vibrant on the palate with citrus goodness and underlying garden herbs through a clean finish. Fresh and pure Savvy. Score - 89 (Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, Sept. 10, 2017)
