91 points Decanter: "The scent of ruby red grapefruit opens the complex array of aromatics, followed by hazelnuts, a hint of talc and hot wet pavement. These follow on the palate, which is sparkly, zesty, citrusy, spritely and acidic. Light oaking for five months gives good texture. A white that longs to be paired with shellfish or cheese. Drinking Window: 2020-2022. (Feb 2020)"

Producer notes: "The wine opens with vivid tropical aromas of white flowers, ripe melon, and sweet citrus. The citrus and tropical characters extend onto the palate with ripe guava and crisp pink grapefruit, balanced by bright acidity and accented by a flinty vein of minerality. This is a zesty wine that stands up well to shrimp, crab, grilled vegetables and is perfect for a cheese plate. Fermentation: 77.9% stainless steel, 21.7% barrel, 0.4% in concrete egg. Barrel aged 5 months in neutral French oak. Alcohol 13.4%."
