Taste profile from the winemaker: "The aroma of lantana and wild herbs combines with tropical fruits and green apple. The palate is exuberant and intense: fruit salad, nettles and fresh herbs burst into existence and continue through the length of the palate, joined at the end by lime/citrus and mineral notes. A powerful and lengthy Sauvignon."

ABC Wines review: Pale yellow with hints of green, this sauvignon blanc has a strong, but balanced, fragrance of gooseberry, citrus, green apple, and herbs, possibly grass. Crisp on the palate with mineral notes, the fruit flavors develop nicely before tapering off to a brisk, mildly acidic finish. This would be a very food-friendly wine that could be served with a wide variety of cuisines. Our score: Above Average, nearly Excellent.
