Stoneleigh, Rapaura Series Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Smoky Padron pepper aromas drift across layers of white and yellow fruits with floral hints and leafy suggestions appearing. On the palate, green tea and sage bring a sweet umami flavour profile, with pineapple and stone fruit lingering beneath. Fabulous.
