Taste profile from the winemaker: "The aromas jump out of the glass, with notes of citrus, gooseberry, and fresh cut hay. All stainless steel fermented, this wine shows pure focused fruit and a laser-like crispness."
ABC Wines review: Refreshingly fragrant, this sauvignon blanc has aromas of tropical fruit, notably pineapple, with notes of grass and sweet herbs. The wine has an almost creamy texture with clean fruit-forward flavors. The finish is on the disappointing side, a bit too acidic with little balance. The wine should pair well with most chicken dishes. Our score: Above Average but well short of Excellent.
