Producer: James Evers
Country Region: Adelaide Hills, South Australia

Tasting Notes:
Light green in colour, it is a Sauvignon Blanc with rich, intense tropical / gooseberry fruit aromas on the bouquet leading on to a rich and full flavoured wine with an array of tropical/passionfruit/ kiwi fruit flavours with a crisp zesty acid finish.

Why does this wine go with this particular dish:
Perfect with Paul's Fish Dishes because  it's zippy acidity brings all the freshness of the fishes to life.  It's a full-bodied wine with lots of herbaceous qualities, which will complement the rich fresh smoked fish flavours
