Nederburg The Winemaster's Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2010
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.

Clean, crisp and refreshing with white grapefruit and herbal notes. Terrific aperitif or companion to many dishes, from seafood to salads. 4.4/5

|The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Durbanville, Stellenbosch, Philadelphia and Darling areas. The vines,situated some 100m to 150m above sea level and planted between 1980 and 1999, are grown in Clovelly, Hutton, Tukulu and Oakleaf soils.|
The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 22º to 24º Balling from February to March. The fruit was crushed and
cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 13ºC for a period of two to three weeks. A proportion of the
grapes received skin contact for four to six hours before the free-run juice was drained. The wine was left on the fermentation lees for two months prior to final blending. Juice and wine movements were kept reductive with minimal mechanical handling to retain the distinctive Sauvignon blanc flavour and quality.
