Overall Experience

This Infamous Goose Sauvignon Blanc 2016 has balance, complexity, and intensity, but the finish could have been a bit longer. This is a very good wine that we recommend to drink now and not suitable for aging.

Winemakers Notes

Pale lemon straw with green hue. Fresh aromas of white peach, fresh green herbs, blackcurrant bush and wet river stones. A lovely rich fruit core of citrus and apple is balanced with fine acidity for a soft yet pleasantly dry finish.
