Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

On the nose, this Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of ripe peach, Granny Smith apple, clementine, citrus notes, white flowers, and hints of white pepper and menthol.

It is crisp on the palate with very bright acidity and a long finish. It has flavors of tart Granny Smith apples, ripe peach and lemon.

Tasted February 2018
Man Family Warrelwind 2016 is a dry, medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa's Western Cape wine region. Summertime warrelwinds (whirlwinds) are common in this winery's vineyards. Look for pink grapefruit, citrus, yellow plum and grassy flavours on this flavoursome SB. Pair with fish tacos. - Community Wine Reviews
