Brampton Sauvignon Blanc 2003

A zesty upfront wine in true New World style. Passionfruit, Gooseberry, Litchi and Asparagus aromas follow through to a full, lively palate. The fleshy well-rounded mouthfeel derives from grapes harvested at optimum ripeness. Enjoy on its own, or serve with a variety of fish, seafood and poultry dishes.
