Taste profile from the winemaker: "Colour: Radiant golden yellow. Nose: A powerful nose marked by typical Sauvignon notes of boxwood and broom that slowly evolve towards citrus and passion fruit. Richly aromatic. Palate: The attack reveals the crispness of the fruit, giving the impression of biting into the grape itself. The mid-palate is rich and expressive, harmonious and deep, the finish smooth and elegant on pleasantly lingering fruit."

ABC Wines review: This white wine exhibits a somewhat odd aroma of dried, candied fruit. Dry and rather understated, the taste has a blended mineral and vegetal quality to it. The long lasting finish is quite nice. Not a sipping wine or even one for light meals, it should go well with most heavier dishes. Our score: Average.
