Taste profile from the winemaker: "Pale yellow and 100% fermented in stainless steel. No oak. Selected grapes picked to show best varietal aromas and fruit. Extremely attractive tropical fruits and grassy due to the cool Casablanca climate. A fresh, crispy light, happy wine to the palate. Enjoy as young as possible."

ABC Wines review: Classic aromas of gooseberry and citrus blend with notes of grassiness and herbs are exhibited by this sauvignon blanc. The palate is crisp with a clean, mineral dryness, but otherwise lacks a discernible flavor profile. The finish is brief and unremarkable though it is quite dry. An example of a wine that starts well but ultimately disappoints. Our score. At this price, this wine is Below Average.
