Bellingham Ancient Earth Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Pale straw with a youthful green twinkle, and an overtly tropical fist impression with lively pineapple, pear and passion fruit aromas that lead to a fresh entry packed with Cape gooseberry and ripe fig flavours against a herbaceous hint that finishes with delectable 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.
