Bascand Estate - Sauvignon Blanc 2015-16Lively And Crisp
Pungently aromatic, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc assails the senses with red capsicum (bell pepper) and gooseberry characters through lush passionfruit and tropical fruit overtones.
Other notes include fresh cut grass, tomato stalks, grapefruit or limes.
Sauvignon Blanc's 'zing' is a delightful complement to the fresh flavours of seafood, shellfish and white fish. enhance the effect with citrus or garlic based sauces.
Crunchy summer salads and capsicums resonate with the flavours of Sauvignon Blanc; both the wine and the dish are flattered by the match.
Tangy foods, such as tomatoes and vinegar based dressings, are other sympathetic matches.
On its own, Sauvignon Blanc is a mouth-watering aperitif.
