Tokara Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Tokara Sauvignon Blanc 2014

The wine displays a vibrant deep straw colour with flecks of green. The aromas on the nose are a melange ripe tropical fruits such as guava, papaya and passion fruit intermingled with the more herbaceous aromas indicative of a cooler climate Sauvignon blanc such as asparagus, nettles and fresh cut grass. On the palate the wine is surprisingly full and rich with mouth filling flavours reminiscent of the characters on the nose. The Mid palate is broad and textured but the finish fresh and clean. Unmistakably Sauvignon blanc.

This wine is best drunk cold on a hot summer’s day on its own or it can be served with grilled chicken and fish, fresh oysters or even a light prawn curry.
