TASTING NOTES
Clear and bright with an aroma of passionfruit and Bartlett pear, with just a touch of gooseberry and grapefruit.  This Sauvignon Blanc has a light- to medium-body, and a smooth yet refreshing mouthfeel. Green apple and citrus notes excite the palate, then as the wine warms, look for notes of melon and passionfruit to develop.  Refreshing pink grapefruit, gooseberry, white currant, and lemon scented herbs linger on the finish.  Enjoy while young and fresh.

FOOD PAIRINGS
Serve at a cool 10 to 12ºC. Fabulous spring and summer refresher. Enjoy anytime of the year with shellfish, oysters, sushi, bouillabaisse; fish fillets with fresh herbs; summer gazpacho; goat cheese appetizers; steamed asparagus; summer salads; goat cheese stuffed chicken breast; goat cheese soufflé; lemon parsley chicken; ceviche; herbal pesto on pasta and chicken; Margherita pizza; light herbed cream sauces on pasta and seafood.
