Honig Sauvignon Blanc
A crisp, fresh Sauvignon Blanc created in the classic Honig style. Peach, lemon grass, hints of jasmine and pea shoot are balanced by grapefruit and lime. Medium bodied, with a bright, lingering finish. Enjoyable with many foods including curries, roasted fish and a wide variety of cheeses.
Floral notes ranging from honeysuckle to orange blossom are wrapped in peach and exotic citrus tones. The extraordinary interplay between fruit and oak creates a richly textured mid-palate that is seamlessly balanced on solid acidity and minerality. The lengthy finish includes notes of vanilla bean and ruby grapefruit. This remarkable example of an ageable Sauvignon Blanc can be enjoyed now through 2026 and beyond.
