Sixteen Ridges Bacchus 2018

Tasting Note

Lifted aromas of crushed basil leaf and a hint of floral honeysuckle, lead to an explosion of zingy citrus blossom, nettle and pineapple. The long finish is clean and crisp and leaves you wanting more. Perfect accompaniment to salmon or trout dishes, tomato and mozzarella salad, asparagus and goats cheese. Vegan friendly.
