Wine EnthusiastThis shows the sunny opulence of the vintage, brimming with tropical- and stone-fruit notes. Guava and nectarine flavors meet ample weight on the palate, balanced by a slightly chalky finish.

Wine AdvocateScented of gooseberries, fresh pears and golden delicious apples, the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc offers a pleasant hint of herbal lift on the light to medium-bodied palate, though lacks a little in intensity and finishes rather abruptly.
