The Wine: A bright zippy wine with typical Sauvignon Blanc aromas of gooseberry, fresh cut grass and figs. A delicious and refreshing glass of wine which is perhaps our best Sauvignon blanc to date. This Sauvignon has a round textured mouth feel, great balance and fresh supple acidity. The den wines are comfort wines, and this wine delivers just that.
Food Pairing: The den Sauvignon Blanc is delicious on its own or with simply served oysters on the half shell with brown bread and butter. Make yourself a lovely summer salad with mixed greens, figs, green grapes, radishes, chevin cheese and a mustard vinaigrette and pull up a large glass of this wine. Excellent with peri- peri chicken and chips.
