Wine Review: This fresh, clean Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa is a pale-yellow color in the glass, and has aromas of pineapple, green melon, fresh cut grass, mild lime, and wet river stones. On the palate, it is medium bodied and balanced with bright plus acidity. There are flavors of Bartlett pear, tart lime creme, gooseberries and light flinty minerality. The finish is quite dry and has good length. It would pair well with bistro orange roughy fillets with crispy potatoes. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: Distinctive complexity with layers of tropical fruit, pineapple, green pepper and gooseberries. This vibrant styled Sauvignon Blanc presents a vivid lemon-lime color, with a flinty thread on the palate underpinned by a floral freshness. As the wine evolves, it develops green apple and kiwi fruit in the glass, with intriguing tropical tones. The entry is fresh progressing towards a well-structured mid palate, balanced by the refreshingly vibrant natural fruit acidity.
