Wine Review: This light yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc opens with a Anjou pear bouquet with a hint of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a ripe Anjou pear with perfectly infused minerality. The finish is dry and pleasant. This Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa would pair well with grilled bacon wrapped shrimp. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A bright lemon-green colour with a pronounced nose of crushed stinging nettles, lemon zest, green fig and black current leaves all held together by an intriguing floral note. A vivid palate with an engaging concentration of clementine peel, granadilla pulp, Cape Gooseberry and Charentais melon; a rich texture that caresses the palate, offset by a perky acidity. Complex with a refreshing finish. Versatile and to be served with char-grilled artichokes; oysters; grilled line fish and shellfish; calamari; smoked salmon; seafood paella; and oven baked goat's milk cheese.
