The colour was light-medium straw gold with greenish tint. There was strong crisp citrus melon fruit bouquet. The taste showed medium crisp citrus lime and tropical fruit, and a grassy stalky dry finish. This had strong crisp clean flavours, and a nice fruit-acid balance. It won a gold at the San Francisco wine competition, and a silver at Liquorland 2004.

(Rating)

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.
