Tasting Notes

Very aromatic yet elegant with distinctive yellow peppers, sage, tropical fruits, peach and melon and wild fennel. This Sauvignon is full-bodied, gracefully contoured and velvety-smooth. Marvellous with crustaceans whether raw or gracing a plate of pasta. Excellent with aromatic spring herb risottos.

Reviews & Scores

Stainless steel. Same leesy, sour nose as all others, bottled too reductively? Lemony freshness with a spicy edge. Finely textured. Not of the piercingly herbaceous, old-school Sauvignon Blanc. Much more subtle!

TASTING NOTES

Temptingly elegant bouquet of melon and pineapple-led fruit with pleasing wafts of hawthorn. The palate is balanced with well-gauged acidity rounded off by a lingering finish. One of the most food-flexible wines. Serve with vegetable veloutés and soups or fish.Armit Wines
