Winemaker's Notes:

"Scents of lemongrass, litchi and lime create layers of exotic spice and fruit in the rich sauvignon. The fruit is brisk and fresh, balancing its warm, round texture. This should develope over the coming year, to serve with Vietnameses green curry chicken or fish."
-Wines & Spirits

This Sauvignon Blanc is a bright and lively aromatic blend of gooseberry and lime that is balanced with the subtlety of Asian pear. With a crisp, clean taste, this Sauvignon Blanc is well structured with hints of grapefruit and the tart zing of citrus, which are rounded out by mineral compliments that give this wine classic varietal character.

Food Pairings: Handcrafted to pair with a variety of foods, this wine can be enjoyed with Asian cuisine, seafood or a tangy goat cheese and fresh fruit.
