Greeny straw to light straw in colour. Lots of gooseberry on the nose, together with lemon and tropical notes. Much fuller and sumptuous on the palate than in other years, probably as a result of another dry season that enhanced concentration. The finish is still juicy, light and lingering, with a fresh acidity.

With its natural acidity and acute texture, this wine pairs beautifully with sea-foods, sea-food pasta and spicy foods such as Chinese and Thai dishes. Also goes extremely well with dishes containing acute seasonings, and salty eats such as pre-dinner canapés. A natural partner to goat’s cheese. On its own, a refreshing aperitif wine.
