4 Stars Michael Cooper
An emerging classic. Pale lemon/green, it is mouthfilling and slightly sweet, in a strongly varietal style with generous, peachy, slightly spicy flavours, showing excellent depth and harmony.

Best drinking mid-2017+

Weather Conditions: Spring and early summer were hot and extremely dry. Much needed rain came in December and January promoting a vibrant and
healthy canopy.

After a warm summer we received more rain just a few days before harvest. Luckily the fine weather returned – and with the help of our amazing picking team we managed to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.
