2016 Sauvignon Blanc
- 750 ml
The aroma of this brilliant green-straw-colored wine is reminiscent of citrus, lemon-lime, white peach, pear, apples and lemon grass. The flavors are nicely balanced with lemon, lime, melon and green apple. With great body, the wine has good acidity with an excellent clean finish. There is a great balance of fruit and brightness.
