Marianne Sauvignon Blanc 2004

Marianne Sauvignon Blanc 2004

Nose is a tropical salad of passion fruit, pineapple, litchi with some gooseberry. All backed by the slightest touch of nettle. Very lively bright and youthful in the mouth. Fresh zesty finish. Well judged acidity balances well with sweet fruity characters. Good now yet should develop well in the bottle over a year or two.
