LOrmarins Sauvignon Blanc 2006

This wine reflects the greener flavours typical of cooler climate Sauvignon blanc. This wine shows a strong citrus base on the nose with a powerful asparagus and cut grass aroma, leading into citrus and complex green vegetal tones combining with a hint of tropical flavours on the palate. The wine shows a unique balance between classic herbaceous characters infused with elegant tropical fruit flavours producing a lasting, refreshing and full aftertaste.
