93/100

'With fresh waves of grapefruit juice and lime zest washing over the tongue, this invigorating wine would be great with crudités or raw seafood to cleanse the palate and leave a granitic minerality to ground the finish.'

'Shows a limpid hue with glittering emerald streaks and aromas of kiwi fruit flesh, white peach skin, white pepper, ruby grapefruit, sugar snap pea, and wild basil. The palate has an enticing stony quality filled out with mineral and citrus character.'
