The colour was pale lemon gold, and it was clear and bright. The bouquet was intense tropical gooseberry lemon fruit, and was dry and clean. there was strong lemon gooseberry fruit, and a dry and stalky finish. This wine had crisp clean intense fruit, and was dry and fairly complex. Very impressive.

Note 1 I am not really a wine expert (just an enthusiastic amateur), so please don't take my recommendations as anything more than a rough guide to these wines. I can take no responsibility if you buy a lot, on my recommendation, and then regret it!

Note 2 You may not agree with my evaluation of these wines as a lot of this is quite subjective. I tend to put a lot of emphasis on complexity and intense characteristic flavours and bouquet, so if you disagree you might just have different priorities.
