Lovely aromas of passion fruit, gooseberry, grapefruit and lemon notes, fresh grass, wet stone and some minerality as well. All of this leads to a grapefruit freshness on the mouthfeel, with still noticeable acidity, but tamed by partial oak fermentation which gave it a smooth texture. This wine finish is long, refreshing with a hint of sweetness. Srongly recommended.

Wonderful flavour, richer than you'd expect from sauvignon blanc, with citrus and tropical fruit.
