Our tasting note: Pale, straw-yellow colour, with greenish hints. Intense - classic Sauvignon Blanc nose - tropical aromas and flavours (lime, papaya and passion fruit), orange and grapefruit citrus, with herbal/green pepper notes. Dry, balanced, with mineral notes and ample acidity, and a long, clean finish.
