Balance Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon 2016

Very pale green hue, deliciously vibrant aromatics that infuse rich ripe peach and juicy pineapple with hints of asparagus. The wine is beautifully complimented by crisp natural acidity.

Combines beautifully with fresh light flavours. Asian inspired cuisine is ideal, in particular lemongrass, mild chilli, fresh coriander, and basil, support the wines pure fruit flavour.
