Part 4 of 6 - Sauvignon

I have never seen a Sauvignon that looks like this. The micro-climate around Casa Roma has created a very different Sauvignon. The distinct colouring is due to the maceration, the grape skin has been left in contact for a longer period of time. Experimental, yes. Does it work? Yes, I think it does.

To look at:
Deep golden yellow.

On the nose:
Strong green vegetable, green peppers.

To taste:
Tastes much fresher and greener that it looks. Bursts of gooseberry with every mouthful. Smooth with a good balance. It certainly doesn't taste how it looks.
