Cederberg Sauvignon Blanc 2013

An aromatic Sauvignon blanc filled with a combination of capsicum and grassy notes with gooseberries; lemon zest and white asparagus undertones. The wine leaves a sensation of creaminess on the mid-palate yet finishes off with a crisp acidity leaving your palate refreshed.

The ideal companion to a traditional chicken pie, but try it with shellfish or pork to bring the best out of your dish.
