The RRP for this seems to have come down in recent vintages – whether that’s a sign of market conditions or a devaluing of the label I’m not really sure, though based on this tasting I wouldn’t want to be paying even $32 for it.
A very pale, light straw colour, this has a very light, subtle nose of green apple with some a splash of oats. Its a very muted nose that is quite simple and very unevolved. Suitably the palate is green, thin and light, with a very short, apple & citrus driven simple style that fades all to quickly. It all feel very underdone and way too young – It needs another 12 months on lees as a minimum and some bottle age after that. In time it may well come around (and the LD version is often nifty stuff). Otherwise, little appeal here. 15
