Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
In the glass, the Tower Rock Sauvignon Blanc by Mount Riley presents a brilliantly shimmering light yellow color. The bouquet of this white wine from New Zealand’s South Island delights with nuances of blueberry, grapefruit, lime and kumquat. If we continue to feel the aroma, juniper, Mediterranean herbs and lovage are added.
On the tongue, this light-footed white wine is characterized by an incredibly light texture. Due to its vital fruit acid, the Tower Rock Sauvignon Blanc presents itself exceptionally fresh and lively on the palate. The finale of this maturable white wine from the New Zealand South Island wine-growing region, more precisely from Marlborough, finally captivates with good reverberation.
