Le Pommier Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Le Pommier Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Pale green with light straw hues on the colour. The nose is laden with gooseberry, tropical fruit with a hint of nettles. The palate shows lime, citrus and gooseberry fruit with a flinty, mineral finish.

This is an excellent partner with most seafood and salads.
