Sauvignon Blanc [premium] 2016

Pale, bright, green-tinged yellow. Pure, vibrant aromas of lime blossom, gooseberry, ripe guava, fresh passion fruit, white pepper and quince.  Shows amazing elegance, balancing perfect acidity with ripe fruit.

The 2016 harvest was exceptionally early with harvesting of Sauvignon Blanc commencing on 29 January and finishing on 9 February and due to the worst drought since 1904, the crop for white grapes was reduced by 50%.  The wine is very satisfying and one of the most remarkable adventures since I started here in 1998. Please enjoy chilled with fresh asparagus, grilled or baked fish and chicken kebabs.
