Winemaker's notes:
The bouquet is an inviting mix of tropical, passionfruit aromas with notes of musk and box hedge. Palate entry is luscious and lively, bursting with red current, gooseberry and passionfruit, rounding off with a hint of capsicum. This is a fantastic example of Black Label Sauvignon that is equally enjoyable on its own and with food.
