Taste profile from the winemaker: "This Sauvignon Blanc is elegant, round and of great volume. Flaxen gold color. A fresh and crisp bouquet. On the palate, the wine is elegant, round and mouth filling balanced by crisp acidity. A clean and bright wine of astounding quality, this wine is best when served chilled. Enjoy with ceviche, oysters, and sush or serve as an aperitif."

ABC Wines review: This unusual wine has mild scents of ripe citrus and tropical fruit, maybe a bit of gooseberry. It is crisp and dry with a pleasant acidity. The disappointing finish dissipates rather abruptly. This is one of those wines that is best opened 10-20 minutes before pouring, and served just barely chilled. Our score: Average.
