Tasting Note: A new world style of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine has intense aromas of gooseberries, tropical fruit and sweet-grapefruit with a core of minerality. The excellent natural acidity creates balance to the concentrated, rich mouth-filling texture.
Pairs well with full flavoured seafood dishes and creamy soup or blackened, spicy pan-fried fish.
