2015 Sauvignon Blanc

TASTING NOTES

Our 2015 Claar Sauvignon Blanc contains aromas of nectarine, mango, kiwi fruit, freshly snapped pea pods and crushed tomato leaf. The palate contains a balance of vibrant acidity and rich palate weight. Flavors of nectarine and passion-fruit dominate the initial taste and later transform into fresh picked gooseberries. The bright acidity carries the fresh fruit flavor to a long, persistent finish.
