Avontuur Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Aroma: The nose is forthcoming with an explosion of tropical fruit, passion fruit and lime.
Flavour: Green citrus with passion fruit, following through from the nose. A pleasing, well-balanced mid-palate and a crisp finish.

Will compliment fresh seafood and fish with lemon and grilled chicken.
