Ideally served lightly chilled on its own or with fresh shellfish and mildy spiced Thai cuisine. Drink this wine within two years of purchase , once open soncume within 2 days.”
A Zesty White
My only other encounter with the Sacred Hill winery was a rather disappointing Pinot Noir they produced for Tesco but this delightful wine tips the scales back in their favour. A fresh and crisp wine to be shared on a girls night rather than one for pairing. A floral nose and a zesty surprisingly smooth wine that carries its alcohol well.
Not one I would store but this is a gift wine I'll be sure to pick up for a quiet night in, very impressive.
An Unusual Wine
A fragrant wine with delicate aromas of passionfruit and citrus with an explosive palate of zesty fruits and herbal notes. This Sauvignon Blanc has a depth and finish of a much finer vintage making it well worth gifting.
Probably not one I would add to my wine rack but definitely worth pairing with fresh fish if you're hosting. Definitely one for a lighter wine glass however as it oxidises quickly
