This has sulphur and green fruit notes on the nose. The palate is sour and lacking in fruit.

This is a wine that had to grow on me. First sip was not so good.

I certainly am not going to knock down a wine that was awarded Les Citadelles du Vin’s “Trophée Excellence” at
VinExpo Asia Pacific 2008 in Hong Kong, China. It is an excellent wine but for me took a little warming up too to enjoy.

It has very typical Sauvignon Blanc notes. Citrus (grapefruit) at first followed by taste of fresh cut grass. There is a little bit of acid in the taste that makes it a little harsh but stay with it and you will discover why this wine is an award winner.

The harsh taste may have been due to the temperature of the wine and first tasting it without any food pairing.

It does have a nice long citrus finish.

Okay, some recommendation are in order for this wine. It is not a sipper …. this one deserves to be paired with a nice meal. If you open this wine planning to enjoy it alone you are not doing this wine any justice.
