Celery salt & citrus, broad, slight spice lift. Zingy, moreish with good flavour, phenolics add to length. Food : interestingly, the phenolics aren?t affected as much with PG!

A crisp dry wine with light flavours of pear and grapefruit that improves markedly with food, seemingly richer and more flavoursome.

Pale lemon, green hints. Subtle citrus, white-pepper and celery-seed aromas. Lively palate, clean spicy/pepper flavours, good even mid-palate, very clean dry finish. Food: The dish highlights the lightness and liveliness of the wine, and the savoury/pepper characters in the wine work well with the dish.

Bright clean green fruit on the nose and palate. Great structure with lovely mid palate texture. Subtle citrus flavours linger. A great match with the snapper dish as the greens of the wine and the dill flavours married in well.

Light straw. Slightly minty, pepper, dill-tinged melon Med-full, lightly lime tinged, dill, melon, apple elegant balanced palate. Fresh appley finish. Fairly neutral mutual impact, although food brought out a slight creaminess in the wine

Attractive mineral nose , very much a savoury style. The palate has a delicious savoury character with slatey notes and a refreshing herbal edge. This savoury style is an excellent foil to food.
