Bright appearance of light straw with a green tinge. The nose is lifted and fresh with guava, lychee, grapefruit and gooseberry notes. The palate is intense and lively with tropical fruits, gooseberry with savoury notes on the mid palate. Tangy acidity rounds out the wine and gives a mouth watering finish.
