Pepi Sauvignon Blanc 2005

Alcohol content: 13.5%

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Bright Sauvignon Blanc varietal aromas of grapefruit, lime and melon. Light bodied and elegant with crisp acidity. A very refreshing bottle of wine, perfect for sipping with lunch while enjoying a sunny day."

ABC Wines review: Clean, bright aromas of fresh citrus with just a hint of spice are evident upon pouring. The initial taste is pleasantly crisp with muted mineral notes. The finish, however, is somewhat acidic and a bit disappointing. Pair it with mildly seasoned stir-fried chicken or pork. Our score: Average, particularly at this price point.
