Signatures of Doolhof Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Veritas 2008 - Silver
A lively Sauvignon bursting with green fig and ripe tropical flavours. An enticing, complex bouquet of capsicum and green fig. Gooseberry and passion fruit flavours introduce a perfectly tapered tail.

This wine is delicious alone but is also an ideal food companion. Try pairing it with grilled butterfish on buttered asparagus or salmon fish cakes and sorrel sauce.
