Bouquet: Bright, fresh, citrus driven sauvignon, with elements of honeydew melon, pears and gala apples in the background. A very pure, yet restrained, classic sauvignon expression.
Palate: The citrus core of flavours are juicy and intense. Deliciously refreshing saline acidity and mellow rounded texture on the finish. The wine calls for fresh, simple seafood, but as usual, can be enjoyed on its own.
Food match: Fresh, simple seafood dishes especially oysters. Also compliments goat's cheese well.
Cellaring: Drinks beautifully now or can comfortably be cellared for five years or more.
