Wine Review: The 2016 Indaba Sauvignon Blanc is a great deal at its price point! Light in body, pale straw in color, the bouquet opens with inviting tropical fruits such as pineapple, lime and cantaloupe. I also detected hints of honey. The crisp, robust and slightly tart palate includes pineapple, lemon and lime, hints of tangerine and herbs with nice lively acidity. The finish is dry with notes of black pepper that fade away nicely. I would pair this South African Sauvignon Blanc with Shrimp Pad Thai. - Joe

Winemaker Notes: Enticing tropical fruit and citrus aromas lead to fresh flavors of pineapple, lemon-lime, mango and green fig, backed by a solid acidity. Herbal nuances shine through on the mineral-tinged finish of this easy drinking, food friendly Sauvignon Blanc.
