Winemaker's Notes:

Bright color, clear, straw yellow in color. It's packed with gorgeous aromas of lime zest, passionfruit and currant. The palate is intensely flavoured showing a juicy mouthfeel and racy acidity leading to a beautifully lingering finish. Every year this label delivers most satisfying Sauvignon.
My Notes:
