Reviewed By: Mike Supple

Thoughts: The acid is a bit more subdued this year, making this a very mellow wine that is easy to sip. A classic Marlborough grassy and fresh herb flavor surrounds the fruit. Combine the mellow flavors with the fact that it's bottled with a screw cap and you have a go-to wine for all of your spring and summer casual wine get-togethers.
