Wine Review: This almost clear colored wine is a classic New Zealand styled Sauvignon Blanc. It opens with a fragrant gooseberry and mild yellow grapefruit bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, crisp, acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty tart grapefruit with notes minerality, gooseberry, and Anjou pear. The finish is dry and its flavors and lingering acidity are nicely prolonged. This Sauvignon Blanc would be a nice option for a hot summer day by the pool. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Pale straw with green hues. Aroma: Passionfruit and blackcurrant leaf with a floral lift. Palate: A rich palate with passionfruit and blackcurrant flavours and a salty minerality. This wine has a silky luscious texture with a long finish. Food match: Enjoy on its own or match with fresh seafood or a summer salad.
