Pale silvery straw color. Aromas of char-grilled green pepper, dried grapefruit, and kiwi with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium body and very smooth, pickled tomato and grassy earth accented finish.

Pale straw green color. Bold grilled green and chili pepper and grapefruit aromas with a tangy, light-to-medium body and drying straw, mineral, guava and grapefruit pith finish. A very Old World-style dry sauvignon for sipping or the table. (tasted on Oct-29-2012)
