Pale straw with a slight green tinge. The vibrant bouquet exhibits passionfruit and fresh lime characters, with hints of dried herbs and floral notes in the background. Medium bodied, the zesty palate offers freshly squeezed citrus flavours combined with tropical fruits and a touch of quince. An easy drinking ‘classic’ Margaret River wine style with wonderful purity – crunchy, fruit driven, lip-smackingly dry with crisp acidity and a clean refreshing finish.
92 Point Rated - Ray Jordan The West Australian
"Another cracking good wine from Glenn Goodall, whose signature of balance and completeness is all over this terrific entry-level blend. Bright and energetic in the mouth. This is what you want at this price point."
92 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"Snappy, concentrated, flavoursome little number. Margaret River really nails this varietal mix and if there's any confusion as to what characters make it so successful, then you can look to this for answers. Snowpea, gooseberry, white pepper, lemon pith, brine and a pretty jasmine floral that floats through the finish. Uncomplicated, refreshing summer drinking. All there, tick."
Huon Hooke - The Real Review
"Very pale, water-clear colour. The bouquet is very green and crushed-herby, snowpeas and sliced green capsicum. The wine is very light, simple, even bland, although it does have intensity. The finish is dry and balanced, and the wine is very quaffable and leaves the palate refreshed, even if the flavour is far from captivating. More time in bottle could fill it out a bit. It's good at its price."

Average Winter rainfall followed by a warm/dry Spring set up an early start to the growing season. Fruit set was variable, resulting in lower yields across most varieties. The warm Summer daytime temperatures combined with low yields saw harvest begin very early, at the end of January (one of our earliest ever) and all whites were harvested before the end of February. An incredible display of Marri blossom meant bird pressure was practically non-existent in the first half of vintage, and a short rain event after the white harvest offered some respite setting up the reds perfectly. Warm conditions continued throughout March, with all of the reds being harvested by the first week of April, our earliest ever harvest completion. In summary, 2020 will be remembered as an excellent vintage in Margaret River. All of the fruit for this wine is estate grown on our Boodjidup and Lagan vineyards in the Wallcliffe subregion of Margaret River.
