Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vibrant herbal aromas and fresh cut grass on the nose and palate of this medium-bodied, mouth-watering South African white wine made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Lots of acidity for seafood. The vines are planted on the warm, north-facing slopes of the Helderberg Mountain outside the town of Stellenbosch.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: seafood, shellfish, grilled freshwater fish.

Reviews and Ratings

From South Africa, this Sauvignon Blanc from the Western Cape Wine Origin is produced by Ernie Els. The South African golfer has been dubbed "The Big Easy" due to the fluidity of his golf swing. Flavours of asparagus, gooseberry and fresh cut grass are on the nose and palate and may very well remind you of a sun-kissed and freshly groomed golf course. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
