Bellingham Ancient Earth Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Pale gold with a vibrant green glow. Beaming with tropical pineapple, pear and passion fruit aromas lead to a lively entry and generous Cape gooseberry and ripe fig flavours against a touch of herbaceous green pea intrigue finishing with delectable fresh and feisty fruitiness.

Best served chilled as a refreshing aperitif or for enjoyment on its own. Delicious with spicy crab wontons, prosciutto and asparagus risotto or prawn, lime and chilli linguine.
