Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc 2006 (Loire Clone)

Veritas 2006 - Bronze
From the Old World comes the typical grassiness and gooseberry overtones and from the New World, a gentle scent of tropical fruit. This Sauvignon Blanc reflects the fresh, flinty and full-bodied characteristics of grass, peppers and fruit. A long, firm lasting aftertaste. Ideal with seafood and poultry.
