External Reviews for Casa Lapostolle Sauvignon Blanc
The Sauvignon Blanc is bright and attractive light yellow with hints of straw and green. An expressive nose of fresh citrus fruit on entry, followed by sweet hints of white flowers and delicate notes of lychee and fig. In the mouth its young and pleasant, with fresh acidity followed by a delicate sweetness and abundant citrus aromas that persist in the palate. Light and elegant.
