Broken Stone Sauvignon Blanc 2000

This years Sauvignon Blanc was a real challenge due to the heat. We harvested 15 days earlier as last year to preserve fruit. As a result this wine has a pale green colour. Very strong flavours of lemon, gooseberries and a hint of grass dominate on the nose, and a crisp acidity make this wine very refreshing
