"It is pale gold in color and offers a well-balanced taste, and ranges from a fruity bouquet with notes of apple and lemon to a more floral palette." - Winery Notes
"Not Chardonnay? Not a problem. Plenty to work with here. A hint of burnt match on the nose promises a savoury slant in this medium to full bodied white. Followed by bright green fruit; pears, apples and subtle lime delivering a punchy, ripe white wine with big bold flavours." - Erez Gordon, Carboot Wines
