Veritas 2002 - Bronze
John Platter Guide 2004 - 3 Stars
A zippy, lively Sauvignon Blanc with loads of aromatic tropical fruit aromas intertwined between Sauvignon’s characteristic cut grass and green pepper. The style is crisp and dry without being overly aggressive. There is an appealing easy drink ability with mouthwatering fruit salad flavours plumped out by rich alcohol. This is a style to enjoy in its youth.
