Lovely scent of white flowers, plus guava. This is surprisingly full flavoured for a wine of such levity (note - just 11.5%), delivering a spectrum of tangerine, kiwi fruit and guava, with even the merest hint of honey. Bright, juicy, and refined; and there's a detectable minerally sprinkle of white pepper on the finish, which the Laballe family say derives from the tawny coloured sandy soils. A perfect summer aperitif; and an excellent accompaniment to sushi or simply cooked white fish. Now-2018
