Tasting Notes 

Colour

Light straw in colour

Nose

The nose is full of citrus fruits including lemon, lime and grapefruit.

Palate

The aromas follow through onto the palate which is full of peach, apple and citrus with a hint of mineral character and a long finish.

Awards

Top 100 wines in Wine Enthusiast. “Lots of fresh apple and tangy white peach flavor make this light-bodied wine attractive and appetizing. The flavors have great focus, the balance is bright and the alcohol is low”.

 

    Alan's Personal Tasting Notes

    "Wow! - last time I tasted this wine - probably 6 or 7 vintages back my impression was of a cheap, thin, white base wine, heaped with some Tate& Lyle sweetness - not at all attractive!

    However, on tasting this 2017 it’s a completely different (and much improved) animal - so I would suggest we’ve had a progressive change of winemaking style at McManis?

    Fresh, crisp and very well balanced with peach, apple and citric fruits punctuated with delightful, refreshing acidity. It’s almost as if the added sweetness of the previous style killed all the attractive fresh attributes of the base wine. It’s now a very well balanced wine with good length and complexity."
