Raphael 2016 First Label Sauvignon Blanc
Melon-forward, the nose also shows layers of honey, white flowers, pineapple and citrus.
Medium-light bodied but still with nice breadth, the palate is similarly melon-forward but grapefruit, green apple and citrus. Fresh and faintly nutty at the edges. Long, balanced finish.
