Ratings & Reviews


90 Points - Wine Enthusist Magazine:
"Unusually dry and crisp, this gives up tangy green apple, kiwi and lemon flavors backed by electric acidity, rather light body and a touch of enervating astringency that's unusual in a white wine. Fresh oysters, please." - Jim Gordon (2/1/2015)
