Grape Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting Notes:A full, balanced wine with personality and exquisite elegance. The poor soils and gentle ocean breezes create tremendous aromatic potential and a great intensity of floral aromas and fresh, exotic fruit.Aromas of tropical fruits such as ripe guava and mango are followed by a perfect balance of sweet notes and acidity in the mouth. Ideal with goat’s cheese, shellfish, oysters and mild fish.
