Wine Review: This very drinkable Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa is almost clear in the glass, with a nose of white grapefruit and pineapple with hints of grassy gooseberry. It is light bodied and dry with crisp balanced acidity. Tropical lime and grass flavors with integrated minerality on the palate with a fruity moderate finish. A nice sipper at the pool or enjoy with pan seared scallops. - Mark
