South Africa — Elgin • $19.95 • 88.5/100

The wine is paler straw in colour with glints of yellow. Slightly smoky on the attack, the nose shows aromas of dried herbs and uncut grass, then green apple and lime fruit peaking out from underneath. Dry, with crisp acidity and balanced alcohol, the palate shows more fruit than the nose suggests, with lemon, green apple, melon and pear, and a hint of white grapefruit towards the finish. Perhaps a halfway point between the Loire and New Zealand. • Tasted 2017-05-27 • LCBO id#483743 • Find it at your nearest LCBOHOBBS & COMPANY (Agent)
