Stonecross Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon 2001

Innovative winemaking and well-managed oaking gives a light green/yellow appearance. A wine with zip and sparkle and good, crisp lime flavours. The tropical fruitiness is supported by the creamy texture and the lingering aftertaste. A superb aperitif yet enough character to accompany a variety of dishes.

Meat: Vegetarian pasta, pan-fried chicken breast, lean pork and veal schnitzel.Fish: Sushi, oysters, fried perlemoen.Side dishes: Mediterranean vegetables.Herbs: Avoid black pepper.Cheese: Goat’s milk in its purest form.
