COLOUR Pale straw yellow.
NOSE A powerful nose of peach, citrus and passionfruit aromas complexed with some sweaty notes. Pungent and powerful aromatics — sweet citrus, meyer lemon and grapefruit, juiced green apple then a tropical note of pineapple core and passion fruit.
PALATE The palate is intense with excellent mouth feel and texture leading to a long lingering finish enhanced by vibrant acidity. Finishing dry, with a firm acidity that is well balanced by a touch of residual sugar and a solid fruit core that reflects the aromatics. A ripe, luscious wine exhibiting sweat, tropical fruit charac- ters with just a hint of the classic Sauvignon Blanc herbaceousness in the background. Overall a tasty and juicy wine with great length.
