I liked the 2017, though it was quite a bit lighter than this release, it felt. From a dynamic duo working out of Margaret River.

It’s pretty and juicy, lively and fresh-feeling, there’s added dimension in the wine, it feels, and a texture is a mouth-puckering treat. Scents of lime juice, pineapple, sea spray, with the palate slippery then crunchy to finish with more of the lime juice, a tickle of minerally mineral water and a tart, salty finish. There’s a very high refreshment factor here, good nuance of the variety, a little complexity too. It’s a good vibe all up.
