Just in time for asparagus season! Both of these wines are excellent renditions of Sauvignon, but slightly different in style. This Kiwi hits you with a refreshing blast of tropical fruit flavours, high energy, very pure and lightish in feeling. Ideal summer refresher, aperitif or patio lunch wine.
Torres wine has the classic Sauvignon herbaceous thing going on. Perfect for fans of savoury over fruity. My choice with local asparagus. Also, a must-try with a crunchy baguette slathered with goats cheese, and olive oil. A mess of wonderful flavour and texture sensations.
