Zevenrivieren Sauvignon Blanc 2001

The wine has an attractive bright yellow colour with some subtle freshly cut grass aromas. The palate is full bodied in style with a rich creamy lemon mouthfeel. The wine also exhibits a unique herbaceousness which combined with the lemon flavours contributed to a long finish.
