Youthful but not a greenhorn! Quite a mature performance for a Sauvignon Blanc, without ever running the risk of appearing overripe. Distinctly less green than many of its peers, yet finely gooseberry-tinged. Wrapped around this fine spray of green are juicy stone fruit and pineapple, and some herbal aromas. It feels like a speedy ride down a slope with grippy snow but warming sun.
Pairings: salads, seafood, shellfish, soups and vegetables
Storage potential: 3-5 years (can be significantly longer under ideal conditions)
