An excitingly zippy, crisp and refreshing white from Bordeaux.This Sauvignon Blanc is mouth-wateringly drinkable, full of lemon and tropical fruit with grassy notes of nettle and a touch of asparagus. Delightfully slender in body yet has a flavour packed rounded finish.

What the producer says:

“Our Bordeaux range reflects our company’s values, and focuses on accessibility and quality. Produced from a selection of our youngest vines, the wines receive the same care as the rest of our production. Ambassadors for the Bordeaux appellation, these wines will surprise with you with their pleasant, easy-drinking character and do not need to be aged”

Tasting notes:

An excitingly zippy, crisp, and refreshing white from Bordeaux. This wine is mouth-wateringly drinkable, full of lemon and tropical fruit with grassy notes of nettle and a touch of asparagus. Delightfully slender in body yet has a flavour packed rounded finish. Pale yellow colour with greenish tints, on the nose presents notes of boxwood and lime. Very well balanced, with a nice roundness and a long aromatic finish.
