Bright and light with layers of flavour this just had to be a Swig wine. The nose is packed full of citrus with bright apple and pear notes layered with beeswax and the burnt rubber of doughnuting boy racers more commonly found on high end German Riesling. The palate doesn't disappoint either. An unctuous body is balanced by acidity that manifests itself as fresh citrus and green apple sorbet with just a hint of lemon sherbet on the end.

Press Note:

'Grown on 125+yo vines. Barrel-fermented, but with a stainless steel portion. It's waxy and slippery soft, but lime and spice notes keep it alert and pacy. Intensity is very good; so too the poise.' 93/100, James Halliday
