Description

Tasting Notes

“Classic Sauvignon Blanc complexity with green fig floral pear drop notes and a hint of cut grass on the nose, follow through seamlessly to the full textured palate. The silky feeling of the beautifully balanced mouthfeel is complemented by a line of natural acidity and a long aftertaste”.  Johnnie Calitz (winemaker)

Food Pairing

This wine pairs well with fresh oysters, scallops, line fish and creamy purees like cauliflower puree.
