Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa opens with a faint grapefruit bouquet with a hint of lime. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused mild grapefruit with notes of lime. We also detected some hints of gooseberry and peach pit mixed in. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. The Panel thought this wine would be best served slightly chilled on the beach on a hot summer day. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2018 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. 2018 is a wine that favors 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 additional overall complexity to this wine.
