Sutherland Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Prominent aromas of fresh citrus and passion fruit. These follow through on the palate with a lovely long mineral finish. This wine is fragrant and fruity with a dry, zesty finish.
Will develop well for 2 years from vintage date.
An excellent aperitif, and great with delicately flavoured foods.
