This quite full-textured Sauvignon Blanc is a great example of the tendency for South African Savvy to offer a character and style that bridges those of the Loire and New Zealand. Expect grassy, citrus, gooseberry and melon notes on the nose. The palate displays an Old World elegance and crispness along with the grassy, gooseberry character you would expect from New Zealand.

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.
