Tasting Notes

Always a fashionable winner if you like Sauvignon. This particular wine has the merit to always please irrespective of the vintage. That has been the case for the last 25 years. It has a dry and most appealing roundness, and such a lovely lingering after-taste. At its best with fish, shellfish and goat cheese. Best drunk within 5 years, but will keep longer and will change in character.
