Taste profile from the winemaker: "Colour: Luminous, pale greenish-yellow. Aroma: Tropical fruits and zesty gooseberry. Flavour: Deliciously fruity followed by a crisp, clean finish. Match Food: Aperitif, seafood, sushi and salads."

ABC Wines review: A bouquet of gooseberry and stone fruit with fresh grassy notes is exhibited by this wine. Crisp on the palate, there is a sensation of slight effervescence that accompanies the ever so slightly sweet citrus flavors. The finish is moderately long though with little character. Our score: At $7, this is a terrific value for a very good sauvignon blanc. Well Above Average.
