Darren Golding’s excellent Lenswood SB stood out in a flight of its peers—it toes the line between raciness and roundness. It has lime, passion fruit and stone fruit on the palate and fresh green pea, grass and floral aromas. Finishes with lime and fleshy yellow peach.
Aromas are very pungent: yellow pineapple, peach, mustard seed—another reviewer even noted some corn notes. Coats the mouth with a butterscotch-toast flavor, with peach and apple to finish. Wants more stuffing midpalate. Imported by Southland Wines.
