Taste profile from the winemaker: "Offers layers of bright, juicy, citrus fruit flavors that gain elegance from a refreshing, underlying minerality. It’s an ideal match for lighter seafood dishes, roasted chicken, Caesar salad and mildly spiced Asian cuisines."
ABC Wines review: Aromas of a blend of citrus and some tree fruit (pear) are evident in this varietal wine. The palate is crisp and clean with a light to medium body. The finish has a nice balance between mineral dryness and a mild acidity. This food-friendly wine may be served with a wide variety of cuisines. Our score: Above Average to Excellent. We also rated the Tin Roof Sauvignon Blanc 2005 vintage above average to excellent.
