2018 EXCALIBUR | SAUVIGNON BLANC
Adelaide Hills

$22.00

Grapefruit Zest | Lemon Curd | Gooseberry

“… the wine of kings, the king of wines” – Guy de Maupassant

SKU: ZF18EXSB71D1 Category: Tags: ,
Description

Our ‘shining sword rising from the water’ moment wasn’t quite of Arthurian legend, but by a misty dam early one morning, the first rapier-like cut of this Sauvignon Blanc inspired our Excalibur. Perfect for sitting down with a well-chilled glass on a balmy summer’s eve, accompanying a plate of any fresh crustacean known to man.

 

Excalibur will surely impress with its white Grapefruit Zest, Lemon Curd notes and delicate citrus blossom aromas, with tart Gooseberry and mineral-like acidity, it is the perfect accomplice to just such occasions.

”Brilliant straw green color. Interesting aromas and flavors of fresh nougat and meringue, poached pear, grapefruit and yellow pepper skins, and herbed peas with a supple, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, snappy green apple, Meyer lemon and cucumber relish, gherkin and artichoke, and hint of green pepper finish with no oak. A nice dry, soft and savory sauvignon blanc for carefree sipping or the table.”
