Obikwa Sauvignon Blanc 2011
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.
Obikwa Sauvignon Blanc 2011 Wine Review
Dependably delicious year after year at a that-must-be-a-typo price. Refreshingly herbal and grassy with a spike of lime lighting up the middle. Terrific. 4.4/5 Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: fish, salads, light poultry dishes.

|Grapes were sourced from vineyards in Stellenbosch, Paarl, Robertson and Worcester ranging in age from 9 to 17 years old, grown in soils varying from decomposed granite to deep Clovelly and Hutton soils, with excellent drainage. Located at altitudes from 210m to 410m, the vineyards are trellised and appropriate canopy management and row orientation minimises wind damage.|
Grapes were harvested by hand at between 20° and 22° Balling in February. They were picked on taste when showing green fig flavours.The grapes were left on the skin for four hours to preserve the natural acidity of the juice, which was fermented cold at 12° to 14° C.
