Kina Beach Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Tasting Notes

A pure clean nose of citrus lemon and lime is met with a generous dose of crushed gooseberry. Initial entry on the palate bursts with intense flavour. Gooseberry dominates but with a great degree of care. The flavour treads softly around the mouth. A delicate balance with gentle acidity allows the fruit to shine front and centre creating a beautiful wine with a soft aromatic poise. White jasmine flower hits on high notes across the palate until the finish. The low 12% alcohol creates a residual sweetness that charms throughout.
