About This Wine...
85% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Chenin. Simple yet elegant green pepper and apple add subtle Sauvignon tones to the more tropical Chenin Blanc. A refreshing acidic lift on the finish leaves a pleasing citrus taste on the palate.
Named in honour of Hirundo rustica, that valiant breed of migrating bird: arrives in Northern Europe from South Africa in April, rears at least two clutches of young during summer, then migrates back to South Africa for a well earned holiday – a dream many of us have and few fulfil.
