Kumkani Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon 2009

Expressive ripe Sauvignon Blanc characters on the nose, good follow through on the palate. The Semillon is an excellent partner, adding to the complexity and multi-layered palate with an excellent finish.

This wine can be enjoyed on its own, or with seafood or roasted chicken.
