Tasting Notes

With a medium gold color, the wine is immediately intriguing for a Sauvignon blanc. It has captivating floral, spicy and tropical aromas with some fynbos herbaceous notes on the nose. The palate has slight tannin weight, creamy with mineral freshness and delicate acidity on the finish. The intriguing aromas and taste profile make this wine ideal partner for a variety of food.
