Brilliant bright aromas of fresh-cut lemon grass ginger passion fruit and slate. Mildly acidic on the front palate light citrus and stonefruit notes emerge and then give way to ginger and herbal notes on the finish. Impressive texture and mouthfeel lead to a crisp lingering finish. The minerality of the wine is fused perfectly with its fruit profile and everything is in balance.

Musky aromas of grapefruit and wild mint with a suggestion of resiny oak. Then dense spicy and wild on the palate with fairly full but brisk flavors of grapefruit pith smoke and truffley earth. This intriguing soil-driven wine finishes with a refreshing bitter edge.
