Cape Point Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc

sauvignon-blancThe wine shows a complex array of tropical fruit, grapefruit and limes all held together by an incredible mineral backbone. The palate is focused and racy, made in a style to be a wonderful food companion. This Sauvignon Blanc is drinking beautifully at present, but try to exercise patience as it will only improve over the next 2-5 years. Best enjoyed with fresh line fish, oysters, sushi, crayfish and summer dishes in general.
