Picked this up from Planet of the Grapes as part of my 2007 New Year’s resolution to drink more whites. Intriguing, but ultimately didn’t work for me because the aroma and flavour didn’t fit together. Separately they’re not too bad, but together my brain couldn’t cope. Pale lemon-yellow. Moderate nose with vanilla and almond – quite a rich combination. But then on the palate, a lean grapefruit-led, crisply acidic flavour. Whilst the grapefruit later emerges on the nose, it just didn’t fit with the nutty, vanilla notes. Pity.
