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.

Vinification Details

  • The grapes were harvested in the early morning to preserve all the flavours and aromas. After gentle destalking, the grapes are crushed and moved to stainless steel tanks where pre-fermentation maceration takes place for 3 days at 10 degrees Celsius. Standard maceration follows with 2 pump overs and the grapes left to ferment until dry.

History

  • The vines were planted between 2000 and 2004. Choice of cultivar clone and rootstock were well selected in the rich soils that the Western Cape offers. Vines are pruned to deliver well balanced crop and vineyard practices gets managed accordingly. The need for irrigation gets monitored on a weekly basis to ensure the vines never stress during ripening phase

I really enjoy this wine

5 stars

This is a good tasting wine which I find very enjoyable - an added bonus to get it at a reduced price and delivery was fantastic. Quality and delivery don't get better than this! well done Tesco you are on top.

Good value

4 stars

I read the reviews with interest, especially the very bad one! At the first mouthful, I was not sure, the wine seems quite sharp but it becomes mellower as you drink. Excellent value at this price - would not full price though. Intend to order two cases.

Good taste

4 stars

Enjoyed this wine, clear and good fresh taste would buy again at the right price

I really liked this wine

4 stars

This wine is initially rather sharp but has an after taste that is full of its fruit and leaves that feeling of a glow. I find it best with food but very happy to drink it on its own,slightly chilled.

Good value for money when on offer

4 stars

Nice white a lot better than some of the wines on offer. Well worth the money when reduced.

Better than normal Chardonay

4 stars

Really enjoyed this wine. Some Chardonay's can be a bit too strong and full bodied but this was light and fruity.

Delicious

4 stars

Having read Mr Zico's review, I approached this wine with trepidation. My first reaction though was that this wine is delicious and the previous reviewer either had a bad bottle, or he is insane. Either way, he should not have posted a review. This wine is not up there with the best French or New Zealand wines , however, it has everything you would wish for in a mid to low priced Sauvignons. It has fruit, acidity and a perfect balance for social drinking. I'm glad I took the gamble otherwise, like Mr Zico, I would have been the loser.
