Diemersdal Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2017

Diemersdal Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2017

This is a full flavoured, complex Sauvignon Blanc. The wine has good depth on the nose with aromas of citrus, green herbs, hints of asparagus and a touch of sweetness. On the palate excellent natural acidity creates balance, a fine structure and a pleasant mouth-filling texture with a clean finish.

Full flavoured seafood dishes and creamy soup or blackened, spicy pan-fried fish.
