Pale straw, green hue. Citrus and herb notes are at the forefront of the nose on this wine. Beautiful flinty minerality creates layers of interest. On the palate the wine is rich and vibrant. Tropical notes blance lime and grapefruit, all carried by generous acidity and typical Gladstone salinity. Lovely length on the finish.
92 Points | "It's bright and inviting on the nose with green rockmelon, lemon/lime peel, dried herb and grapefruit notes. The beautifully expressive palate displays excellent fruit power and persistency, well supported by crisp acidity, making it mouth-watering and delightfully drinkable. At its best now to 2024." - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
89 Points | "Gently aromatic sauvignon blanc with citrus, grapefruit, lemongrass, gooseberry and melon flavours. A crisp, dry wine with a backbone of fruity acidity and fine, peppery tannins that are balanced by a hint of sweetness. " - Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review
