TRAINING SYSTEM: Vertical system (15 years old)

TASTING NOTES: This bright Sauvignon is light-bodied but intense. A crisp acidity enhances elegant scents of ripe citrus, exceptional grapefruit aromas, hints of guava and tropical fruit flavors that linger through a long refreshing finish. The wine is balanced and thirst-quenching.
