Avontuur Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Colour: Pale golden straw
Aroma: The nose is forthcoming with an explosion of tropical fruit and a slight herbaceousness.
Flavour: Fresh, crisp citrus with grapefruit and gooseberries, following through from the nose. A pleasing, well-balanced mid-palate.
Finish: Crisp and fresh, a pleasant, quaffing wine.
