TASTING NOTES

A complex New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc showing some classic varietal elements as well as notes of barrel ageing. Rosemary, thyme, sage and gunflint mingle on the nose providing a savoury backdrop to a full, dry, fresh palate. Spicy and complex this wine can be enjoyed now, on it’s own or with a range of light dishes. It will continue to evolve and develop for several years.
