QWine reviews  – “Summer time is done easy with wines like this.  Sourced from South Australia’s Riverland, winemaker Andy Williams has ripped out a beauty here. Lemon zest and scents of ocean spray kick things off. A lovely lemon juice drive rolls through with ease. Clean and fresh, refreshment factor oozes through its pores. A gorgeous lemony tang draws you back for more. A bucket of prawns and a big glass for me please.”  Drink now. 92/100
