Taste profile from the winemaker: "This wine's opening aromas of grapefruit, lemon, lime and orange blossoms are followed by hints of hibiscus and lemon grass notes. Upon entry, the mouth fills with flavors of ripe grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, lime and orange. A balanced, medium-bodied wine with crisp, lively acidity and a pleasant, smooth finish."

ABC Wines review: This is a lovely wine. Fresh citrus with a bit of floral green apple aromas are exhibited upon pouring. Very smooth on the palate, the flavors are of tropical fruit and citrus accompanied by subtle grassy notes and a pleasant mineral crispness. The finish is gently acidic and very long-lasting. A food-friendly wine, this sauvignon blanc can be paired with a wide variety of dishes. Our score: Excellent.
