Wine SpectatorThere's lovely toasted coconut, apple pie and lemon cream character on the nose. Full-bodied, with bright, lively acidity and a long, clean, almost minerally finish. Drink now.

Wine EnthusiastBarrel sample. Soft, unfocussed, round wine. It has pleasant kiwi fruit flavors and light acidity.
