An aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with a combination of tropical, citrus and green aromas. Aromas of gooseberries, guava, lemon zest with hints of
asparagus and green fig. A refreshing, crisp acidity finishes off the initial sensation of creaminess on the mid-palate. The ideal companion to traditional chicken pie, but also try it with shellfish or pork.
