Taste profile from the winemaker: "This bleached blonde beauty is reminiscent of fresh green apples, pineapple and has hints of hibiscus blossoms. The concentration of zesty lemon and gooseberry fills your mouth leaving notes of thyme and melon behind. The bright acid in this wine gives you a zing while the fruit keeps your mouth watering for more."

ABC Wines review: This rather flat wine lacks the complexity typical of a good sauvignon blanc. The fruit flavors, notably tart apples, are somewhat bland. The wine is fairly dry and there's a hint of crispness but in the end it's a bit of a disappointment. Our score: Below average.
