Winemaker’s notes:

This vibrant, classically styled Sauvignon Blanc presents a brilliant lemon-lime colour.
The nose is complex with an array of tropical fruit, ripe figs and gooseberries. These
crisp flavours repeat in the mouth, along with a mineral character followed by a long
fruity finish. The distinctive aromas support a wonderfully balanced palate, presenting
purity of ripe fruit, coupled with a lingering harmonious finish.

Food suggestions:

Enjoy with summer foods and salads or serve chilled on its own.
