Lots of cut grass and pineapple on the nose with a touch of orange peel and a hint of dusty minerality. Quite fruity on entry with passion fruit and papaya up front and rolling across the mid-palate. This is round and nicely fleshy with good backing acids that drive the modest, mineral-edged finish. 87pts
