Painted Wolf the den, Sauvignon Blanc 2017

A bright zippy wine with typical Sauvignon Blanc aromas of gooseberry, fresh cut grass and figs. A delicious and refreshing glass of wine which is perhaps our best Sauvignon blanc to date. This Sauvignon has a round textured mouth feel, great balance and fresh supple acidity. The den wines are comfort wines, and this wine delivers just that.

The den Sauvignon Blanc is delicious on its own or with simply served oysters on the half shell with brown bread and butter. Make yourself a lovely summer salad with mixed greens, figs, green grapes, radishes, chevin cheese and a mustard vinaigrette and pull up a large glass of this wine. Excellent with peri- peri chicken and chips.
