Le Pommier Sauvignon Blanc 2003

Pale green with light straw hues on the colour. The nose is laden with gooseberry, green apple and sweet melon with underlying mineral tones. Clean, crisp acidity with an abundance of tropical and grape fruit showing on the palate.

This is a perfect wine for just enjoying on its own or with light summer meals.
