Raka Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Raka Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Appearance: Clear, lime green in colour.
Wine Style: Dry.
Bouquet and Palate: This Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from 3 different slopes and locations on our farm, giving the wine a complex character. Light clear colour, aromas of tropical fruit (kumquats and gooseberries) with a hint of linden. The same fruit character follows through on the palate with a soft acidity and a lingering green finish.

Served well chilled, this wine is well suited to any seafood and cold meats. Also delightful on its own!
