Overview

Baker does it again! His second vintage comes from the cool 2006, made from same low crop, no press, free run juice. Pink grapefruit, ripe lemon, Key lime & fresh herbs on the nose. Light to medium bodied with tropical, green orange pulp and star anise flavours, its sweetness (24 gr./l) incredibly well balanced by very crisp acidity. Long, zesty finish. I could bath in it! Needs "food, lots of it". Try with fatty white fish with grapefruit, apricot salsa & baby arugula. fennel coconut broth and sweet corn dumplings.
