Brampton Sauvignon Blanc 2001

Currently Sold out - Next vintage to be released Sept 2002
A zesty, upfront wine true New World style. Passionfruit, gooseberry, litchi and asparagus aromas follow through to a full, lively palate. The fleshy, well rounded mouthfeel derives from grapes harvested at optimum ripeness. Enjoy on its own, or serve with oysters, light pastas and linefish.
