Asara Cabernet Sauvignon Blanc 2007

This unique wine offers floral aromas combined with the small of yellowe apples. The taste is elegant and reminds of deciduous fruits, like pears and peaches.

With certain characteristics that remind of a good German Riesling, this wine will pair excellently with spicy foods, like a coconut mild Thai Green Curry, or alongside a traditional Ceasar salad. This wine also goes particularly well with South African style braaied Snoek with creamy potato bake.
