Wine Review: This light bodied and pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from the Cape of Good Hope opens with a shy tropical fruit bouquet that includes pineapple, cantaloupe, herbs and hints of minerality. The lively palate includes tangerines, coconut, pineapples and nice acidity. The finish is a ripe off-dry pineapple that fades away nicely. I would pair this Sauvignon Blanc with a coconut shrimp appetizer. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: This Sauvignon Blanc is crafted by Bayten (short for Buitenverwachting, which is Dutch for "beyond expectation") – a Sauvignon specialist recognized for their refined, mineral-tinged whites. Beyond offers a tremendous value, The 2016 is packed with notes of passion fruit, melon, kiwi and lime backed by a pronounced herbal and mineral edge, it displays an elegance typical of cool climate Sauvignon Blanc.
