Spier Sauvignon Blanc 2006

The wine is pale green in colour with aromas of fig and grass, rather than capsicum, all very discreet. The snatches of riper gooseberry and passion fruit, with fruit from the more tropical spectrum, all balances very nicely with the acid on the palate.

Serve with seafood dishes, salads and light/mild cheese.
