Product Description

  • Sauvignon Blanc - White South African Wine
  • In South Africa's Western Cape, the best Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are often found on the slopes of the majestic mountains. This is exactly where we found the grapes for this elegant Sauvignon Blanc. Bursting with fresh passion fruit, melon and pineapple aromas balanced by hints of nettle, green grass and flinty minerality. The refreshing acidity matches the fruit and mineral flavours perfectly and make this a wine that will stand up to a variety of dishes from pasta and poultry to early evening drinks with pleasant company. Enjoy slightly chilled.
