Taste profile from the winemaker: "A brisk white with a dash of herbaceous grassland aromas and flavours that race across the palate stretching to a lively fresh finish. Appearance: A glowing pale gold with a blush of youthful green. Nose: Alluring wafts of grassland savanna layered with gentle pineapple fruit. Palate: Energetic and dry with brisk citrus and herbaceous flavours that canter to the very lively fresh finish."
ABC Wines review: A mix of tropical fruit and tree fruit aromas are exhibited by this golden yellow wine. Ever so slightly sweet on the palate, the moderately full-bodied flavors are balanced with a nice acidity. The finish, however, is unremarkable. Our score: A fairly typical South African sauvignon blanc that we rate the on the high side of average.
