Alcohol 14.1% Taste: This marvellously fresh, flavourful Sauvignon Blanc offers enticing, complex aromas of ripe apples, honeydew melon and spicy pear, with citric undertones. On the full, rich palate, it delivers round, concentrated flavours of sweet melon, lime, kiwi and grapefruit, which segue into a long, refreshing, citrus-y finish. Serve: Delightful on its own, this substantial Sauvignon Blanc is also a great match for herb-roasted free range chicken, crab cakes, grilled veggies and pork chops with apple chutney.
