Taste profile from the winemaker: "Colour: Pale yellow with green rim. Bouquet: Lifted, fresh and vibrant aromas of sweet gooseberry and dried cut grass with a distinctive herbal note. Taste: Classic nettle and gooseberry flavours combine with dry, citrus flavours on a medium bodied palate. Focused acidity provides length and zest to the finish."

ABC Wines review: This sauvignon blanc exhibits fragrances of tart fruits and grass. The complex flavors are primarily citrus with some dried herbal, maybe vegetal overtones accompanied by a stone dry crispness. The finish is very smooth, mildly acidic, and pleasantly long-lasting. Our score: Just shy of Excellent.
