This wine's potent grass and grapefruit scents greet you, and similar flavors follow. It would be easy to mistake this for New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, given its intensity and aroma. In the mouth, it's immaculately fresh and crisp, with steely acidity. Citrus rind flavors continue through its long finish.
