Tasting Notes: A Sauvignon Blanc hinting towards a New Zealand style with mouth-watering acidity, grassy character and crisp minerality. Where it breaks boldly from the Kiwi mold is the addition of lush tropical fruit to the flavour profile and a higher level of alcohol which creates extra texture and body. A hint of spice goes a long way to adding another level of complexity and more food pairing options like sweet and sour Thai dishes. Drink 2011-2012.
