Clean and bright light yellow colour with green hues. On the nose gooseberries and green chilli, with citric notes and a subtle mineral touch. Long, very fresh, full-bodied palate, with a mineral and citric persistence.
Super-fresh, this is a bright Sauvignon with a nose showing gooseberry, grapefruit and green pepper. The palate is crisp and fruity with vivid fruit and a hint of greenness that comes across as almost spicy. A beautifully expressive, lean, concentrated Sauvignon that's quite extreme but works really well. Think Awatere Valley with even more edginess.
