Taste profile from the winemaker: "Refreshing gooseberry, citrus and tropical fruit flavors are backed by a racy jolt of acidity in this crisp, clean Sauvignon Blanc. Notes of bell pepper and fresh cut grass follow through on the zingy finish. It makes a great partner for salads, crabcakes, grilled vegetables, and citrus-accented seafood dishes."

ABC Wines review: A balanced fragrance of fresh grass with more vegetal (bell pepper and asparagus) than fruit (notably green apple) aromas. Initially slightly sweet and somewhat intense on the palate with a tropical fruit blend being the primary flavor, it quickly develops into a distinctly unpleasant finish that has a medicinal quality to it. Very disappointing. Our score: Well Below Average.
