Opens with aromas of lemon curd and toast. Crisp and dry with attractive toasty aged complexity, lemon curd intensity and a long persistent finish. The dish accentuated the acidity in the wine making it appear slightly harder.

Tight citrus juice aromas with faint lemon leaf accents. The palate is powerful, zesty and assertive. A lovely food match.

Moderate intensity and medium bodied with refreshing acidity. An easy drinking everyday semi aromatic dry white wine intent on delivering value for money. Has a lovely fragrant lingering finish.

A lovely floral grapefruit nose with hints of citrus on the palate. Lovely white peach with blossom flavours on the palate. Great depth of flavour on the palate. A great food wine match as the white peach and blossom are lifted. The wine becomes more harmonious.

Pale straw green, lime, lemon, floral, light bodied crisp and clean, falls away on finish.

Uplifted apple notes, citrus blossom, crunchy juicy savoury mouthfeel, lighter wine, with a fine acid line running down the mid palate.
