This wine is a reminiscent of a traditional white Bordeaux. On the nose there are aromas of lemon grass, gooseberry and guava with grassy and herbaceous notes. On the palate there are flavours of white pear, mango and lemon-lime. This wine is fresh and zesty, with a nice crisp finish.

Eira Thomas, Lyndsay's sister is the grower of this wine.
The grapes for this wine were handpicked, whole-cluster pressed, and fermented slowly at low temperatures, (12 degrees celcius) to preserve the aromatics. Fermentation took 28 days to complete. Post fermentation, the wines were blended together.
