Taste profile from the winemaker: "Appearance: Pale straw. Aromas: Pink grapefruit, tropical fruit, and fig. Flavors: Summer melon, lemongrass, and a hint of gooseberry."

ABC Wines review: Very lightly scented, this sauvignon blanc has aromas of tropical fruit and a hint of grass. Very smooth on the palate, the taste is of stone fruit with a brisk mineral crispness. The finish is rather bland, a little dry and tart with a few bitter notes. A solid effort, and though we purchased the bottle at a significant discount, there are far better choices at this price point. Our score: Above Average.
