Awards & Reviews:  

94pts: "Light, bright yellow hue, with a bouquet of iced pastries, lightly-browned toast and almond meal, the palate lemon-citrus and refined, tense and crisp, with lively refreshing acidity to finish. Generous fresh-baked bread yeast-autholysis overtones. The palate is fine and soft, fluffy textured and cleanly dry on the aftertaste. An impressive wine. 2020–2025". Huon Hooke, The Real Review, 12 June 2020.
