High in minerality, grass and green herb flavors [or freshness], this wine isn't bad, as there is no overly cloying citrus aspects that are known to many New World Sauv Blancs. The taste is clean and there is just the slightest bit of petrol character to the finish.

This wine would go perfect with seafood and fresh cut veggies, of which I am thinking prepared asparagus, as well as broccoli.

Ample, but not phenomenal, but they do have a reserve one as well that I am waiting to try.
