Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Cellar master Pieter Ferreira: “These days we put so much more emphasis on viticulture. We’re more vinemakers, than winemakers! You have to start with 100% top quality vines and continuously nurture your fruit in order to ultimately get something special into the bottle.” His Sauvignon Blanc has the elegance of a Sancerre coupled with the rich aromatics (asparagus, gooseberry, citrus and passion fruit) of the New Zealand style. My note: A zippy, zingy attack is a welcome change from over-oaked wines. Vibrantly herbal with fresh-cut grass and straw and a lovely background notes of green apples and lime. The theme is green, my friends. South Africa can do Sauvignon Blanc with the best of them! Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: old cheddar cheese, grilled prawns, marinated chicken on grill, chicken and feta tostades, beef carpaccio, goat cheese.
