Springfontein White 2009

Vibrant green colour with a yellowish tint. The tropical fruit flavours are well supported by the subtle oak flavours which reminds a lot of mineral nuances. Ripe fruit flavours together with the sweetness from the wood, ensures that the palate is filled completely while the elegant and delicate flavours are lingering on the palate.

Enjoy this complex wine with tasty white meat dishes and slightly spicy food.
