The wine is fresh, zesty, and pure. Made in the Northern Italian style with hand harvesting and gentle handling required to minimise the extraction of colour.
Cool fermentation and diligent, attentive winemaking captures the varieties freshness on the palate with flavours and aromas of citrus, pear and almond blossom. A true food wine with wonderful finesses.
91 James Halliday - "Immediately, resolutely varietal, brimming with grigio green apple, lemon, quince, nectarine and a distinctive dusty acacia honeysuckle floral character. Moves fast with brisk acidity keeping a focussed, tight line. Love the lick of lemon tang to close. Mouthwatering good" Jenni Port
