TASTING NOTES


A fresh and floral Sauvignon Blanc with a zesty passionfruit and grapefruit
nose, the mid palate is wonderfully textured with citrus pith and a long
crisp finish. A perfect starter for a drink in the sun with friends.


“Tapping into the Adelaide Hills’ regional pop-star variety, this has all the expected vibrant tropical fruit aromatics"

 lightly-scented lemon and herb aroma, a trace of tobacco. The palate has good flavour and medium intensity, the finish soft and dry, clean and just a touch grippy"
