Guardian Peak Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Appearance: Light straw with a pale green hue.
Aroma: The combination of riper tropical fruit and the cool climate fresh gooseberry characteristics are harmoniously integrated.
Palate: The tropical fruit flavours give the impression of sweet melon, and the delicate herbaceous character from the nose is well supported by a soft minerality which creates a wine that is well integrated and in impeccable balance.
Impression: "A crisp and light Sauvignon Blanc perfect for a summers afternoon on the Guardian Peak deck."
