The distinctive aromatic signature of the variety is abundantly clear, gooseberry, passionfruit, elderflower, and a hint herbal essence abound with a sliver of flinty gunsmoke. In the mouth, the wine is bright and focussed with those tropical fruits & grapefruit citrus notes unravelling through the palate. There is gentle extract in this wine, not the blockbusting Sauvignon on steroids from our northern colleagues but a more restrained, dare we say, elegant expression of the grape. We have kept slightly more grape sugar in the wine this year to counter slightly higher acidity, think of it as adding palm sugar & lime juice to a Thai curry, the two balance harmoniously to offer a more complete experience. It is a shoo-in for South East Asian cuisine. Try it with a spicy, hot, sour Tom Yum soup especially when you throw in some Vietnamese mint & Thai basil which meld beautifully with the herbal elements of the wine. Enjoy young and serve chilled.
