This wine shows blackcurrant, guava and citrus notes. The palate exhibits the same fine fruit flavours with an underlying flinty note typical of Awatere Valley fruit. The finish is long, crisp and dry. This Sauvignon Blanc is ready to drink now, and over the next 3-4 years. The 2009 Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc is sealed with a screw cap to ensure optimum quality and freshness.
