Pale, delicately pungent wine that shows surprising power and length. Gooseberry, red capsicum and lemon grass flavours dominate with an array of more subtle savoury characters in the background. Dry and reasonably complex Sauvignon Blanc - good food wine.
Tasted: Apr 2008 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $19 (~USD $17)
