Taste profile from the winemaker: "Survive the wild with Blue Monkey Sauvignon Blanc, a wedge of Gruyere and a loaf of hearty bread. This wine cuts the jungle heat with cool refreshing fruit and the exotic floral aromas lead into layered flavors of ripe melons and lemons."

ABC Wines review: This wine, very dark in color, almost amber, has a smoky aroma that masks the fruit and citrus notes. It lacks a fresh crispness and has an acidic, somewhat bitter, taste with a flat, though not unpleasant, finish. Too strong to pair with appetizers or as an aperitif, this wine would work best with a heavy dish. Our score: Below average.
