One hundred years ago there were 500,000 rhinos. Now there are just 25,000 left in Africa. Why not hold a Rhino wine tasting with your friends, and help raise funds through buying this wine.

This fresh well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc has hints of tropical fruit. It shows classic nettle and gooseberry characters on the nose.

A perfect aperitif, enjoyed with salads, fish, seafood, white meat, dishes with creamy sauces.

100% Sauvignon Blanc.

Reviewed by wine writer Tom Cannavan of wine-pages.com "this is a Sauvignon in the slightly more tropical, nectarine-fruited mould rather than a more overtly grassy example. In the mouth it has very nice freshness thanks to a cool, lemon zest and its modest 12.5% alcohol retaining a bit of crunch, with that sweet layering of tropical fruit on top. A nice balance between quite pithy acidity and touches of nettle add more character to a pleasing, very drinkable wine. 86/100."
