Guardian Peak Sauvignon Blanc

About This Wine

 2016 VINTAGE

 

Appearance: Fresh straw

 

Aroma: A wonderfully complex aroma of green figs, kiwi and gooseberries are supported by asparagus and hints of pawpaw.

 

Palate: The tropical fruit flavours, particularly kiwi and litchi notes, give way to a fresh gooseberry character which is maintained by a beautiful minerality. This wine has a fresh, yet graceful mouth-feel and a crisp, clean finish.
