Thembi Sauvignon Blanc

Pale straw colour. Gooseberries and lemon grass on the nose, while the palate offers beautiful passion fruit and other tropical aromas. Just a touch of green notes to complete a well-balanced wine with excellent expressive varietal characters. Crisp, long succulent finish.

This wine can be enjoyed on its own, or with a variety of seafood or chicken dishes.
