James Halliday - Published on 17 Mar 2015

Bright, light straw-green; an interesting wine, with plenty to enjoy and plenty to think about, not the least the lemon rind and pine nut descriptors on the label. I'm happy with the lemon rind as a component of what is, without question, a medium-bodied white wine, achieved without any phenolic or extraction issues, as it surges on the finish and aftertaste.
