Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc 2002 (Loire Clone)

KLM - Worldwide Business Class
From the Old World comes the typical grassiness and gooseberry overtones and from the New World, a gentle scent of tropical fruit. This Sauvignon Blanc reflects the fresh, flinty and full-bodied characteristics of grass, peppers and fruit. A long, firm lasting aftertaste.

Ideal with seafood and poultry.
