A brilliant light hay with green edges. On the nose, fresh green lime, lemon sorbet, crisp cucumber aromas with hints of fresh cut lemongrass, pink peppercorn and wisteria blossom. A subtle saline character reminiscent of celery salt and sea spray entwines with pink grapefruit and tarragon notes. The palate characteristics burst forth with lemon juice and lime zest creating a compelling liveliness. In the mouth, the wine is medium in length displaying yellow peach, watermelon skin and nectarine, with a creaminess that balances the mineral focused backbone, giving a lively lemon sorbet richness. Hints of Muscat flower and cypress pine sap invoke the nearby coastal origin of this wine. The winemakers recommend that the freshness of the wine is accentuated by freshly shucked oysters with pickled lime zest, spicy laksa soup with smoked tofu and lemongrass or barbecue seared octopus with lime chili drizzle and Asian coleslaw.

Gentle aromas of red apple, citrus and ginger are backed by nuances of grass and tomato leaf. While the palate is crisp and refreshing, there's a subtle texture and tingly acidity that add interest. The apple and citrus flavors linger delicately on the finish.

Pale, green-tinged yellow. Lemon pith, dried pear and beeswax on the nose, along with a subtle fennel nuance. Supple and broad on the palate, offering ripe orchard and citrus fruit flavors that slowly firm up through the back half. The fennel note returns on a persistent finish that's given grip by a bitter quinine note.

Lean and crisp, with celery leaf, lemon zest and lime juice flavors that are intense and lip-smacking. A whiff of lanolin lingers on the finish. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now. 20,000 cases imported.
