A lemony, almost saline freshness!

Tasting

2017 – An attractive pale gold with green tints. A nose of floral and citrus notes, then seriously moreish on the palate with grapefruit zest to the fore! A tremendously long finish, with a lemony and almost saline freshness that gives you the urge to…. refill your glass!
