Tasting Notes : On the nose, the wine exhibits fragrant elderflower, grapefruit, basil and passionfruit notes with richer underlying stonefruit characters. This is complimented by subtle oak bringing an underlying creamy / vanillan richness. On the palate the wine is full, finely textured and persistent with a slightly dry, flinty edge. This fuller bodied style of Sauvignon Blanc can age gracefully for up to 10 years or more and matches a wider range of foods than the lighter crisper styles. Great with a range of seafoods including richer dishes such as scallops or crayfish. Try with fresh and vibrant salads and vegetables, including fennel, tomato, basil, parsley, rocket, capers, green beans and asparagus and good quality Mozzarella cheese. It also works well with richer poultry dishes and butter based sauces such as beurre blanc.
