What it says on the vin:
Our sauvignon blanc is fresh and lively displaying vibrant gooseberry and citrus fruit flavours that are complemented by a crisp, refreshing finish.
In my glass:
Wasn’t massively blown over by this wine. There was an “oomph” missing but it was, well, OK. This sauvignon blanc has a delicate nose of tropical fruits and a crisp lemon finish.
