Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
A brilliant light hay with green edges. Fresh green lime, lemon sorbet, crisp cucumber aromas with hints of fresh cut lemongrass, pink peppercorn and wisteria blossom. A subtle saline character reminiscent of celery salt and sea spray entwines with pink grapefruit and tarragon notes. The palate characteristics burst forth with lemon and lime creating a compelling, zesty liveliness. In the mouth, the wine is medium in length displaying passionfruit, green apple skin and nectarine, with a creaminess that balances the mineral focused backbone, giving a lively lemon gelato richness. Hints of iodine and norfolk pine needle invoke the nearby coastal origin of this wine.
