Brampton Sauvignon Blanc 2002

This wine shows typical Sauvignon Blanc varietal characters. 2002 will go down as one of the finest Sauvignon years. Superb aromas of capsicums, green figs, grenadella (passion fruit) pips, Cape gooseberries and hints of cut grass can be identified. Flavours are concentrated throughout the palate and the finish is exceptionally long and lingering.
