Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc 2003 (Loire Clone)

Veritas 2003 - Gold
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.
