The wine in the glass has crystal-like clarity, with a straw colour and green hues. The aromas are rich and lifted, with pink grapefruit, lime citrus and a hint of spice; showing its Lodge Hill vineyard heritage. The palate is supportive of these aromas and is enhanced by a zingy natural acid backbone and flavours of mandarin, white peach and strawberry at the forefront. The wine has immense length and intensity of flavour, with a crisp, zesty finish.Bright straw yellow with green tints. On the nose nicely lifted floral and pineapple guava characters with a strong presence of petrichor (smell of rain hitting dry earth) complemented by notes of honeydew melon and brown lime.
