Taste profile from the winemaker (taken from the bottle label): "Gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours, fresh and dry with lengthy citrus finish."

ABC Wines review: This wine has classic sauvignon blanc aromas of gooseberry and grapefruit with significant notes of grassiness. There is little fruit flavor on the palate; mineral and vegetal characteristics dominate. The very long finish develops some acidity as well as brings out some citrus flavors; nicely balanced overall. We served this wine with broiled fish and a Mediterranean salad. Our score: A bit overpriced for the quality. Still, it's on the high side of Average.
