Backsberg Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Backsberg Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Bursting with aromas of gooseberry and passion fruit, this lively wine matches aromatic intensity with freshness and balance. Lime and nettle characters predominate the palate, cleverly matching fruit sweetness with natural acidity.

Particularly compliments salads, cold meats, chicken and fish.
