James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says:“
Pale straw-green; there is a surprising volume of varietal fruit in the wine, with a mix of lemon/ citrus and tropical flavours; good length and balance. Outstanding value.
Best Drinking: To 2013
James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says:“
Has a mixture of gentle tropical notes and an almost savoury, certainly mineral, crosscut.
Best Drinking: 2011
James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says:“
May be on the delicate side, but it cleverly captures the essence of the Adelaide Hills flavours of these varieties, and is a bargain for those who enjoy a touch of passionfruit with a drizzle of lemon juice.Australian Wine Companion 2010 2009
