Review date: July 17, 2016

Wine Review: This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa is very well made. It opens with a gooseberry and wet stone like bouquet with a hint of green pepper. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused grapefruit with hints of green pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Sauvignon Blanc is food friendly and would pair nicely with grilled scallops. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Made reductively in order to maximize the fruit personality of the vintage, the 2015 shows more marked fruit aromatics than usual, while maintaining the typical Southern Right balance of Old World minerality and length with hints of New World palate coverage and body. 2015 is a wine that favours origin expressive individuality, minerality and palate complexity ahead of pure, pungent varietal aroma. A significant percentage of fruit from clay-rich soil has added an intense mid-palate structural component and addition overall complexity to this wine.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Are all wines meant to be aged? No. In fact, perhaps 90% of today's wines are vinified for consumption within 2 years of the vintage.
