Cederberg Sauvignon Blanc 2017

An aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with grassy notes, white asparagus undertones and strong hints of capsicum, gooseberries and lemon zest. A refreshing, crisp acidity finishes off the initial sensation of creaminess on the mid-palate.

The ideal companion to traditional chicken pie, but also try it with shellfish or pork.
