Delaire Sauvignon Blanc Barrel Matured 2001

Barrel-matured Sauvignon Blanc integrates wood and fruit with grapefruit and butterscotch nuances. The broad yet elegant structured mid-palate follows through to a zesty green pepper and grassy finish. This delicious layering of aroma and flavour will compliment light summer lunches.
