Not hugely aromatic, despite the rear labels claim of a 'enticing gooseberry and lime aroma'. The palate though is rather good, with a strawberry complexity to the apple, melon and sweet lime flavours. A dry finish, good long nettley length, medium-weight, good balance and a mineral-edged, if soft, texture.

A perfectly cooked risotto - creamy, delicately flavoured with fresh herbs, a little bite remaining to each individual grain of rice, enlivened with pan-fried leeks and topped with slices of slowly melting Goats Cheese. Sauvignon Blanc and Goat's Cheese: a 'tried and tested' classic combination, confirmed by this sublime food and wine pairing. (A full recipe for the risotto is in the September issue of Delicious magazine).

Scribblings Rating - 92/100 [4 out of 5]
