Neil Ellis Groenekloof 2017 is a medium-bodied, vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with stony, green herb and peppery spice flavours on the palate. Made for food! Pair with an asparagus, artichoke and goat cheese galette, this Darling wine region SB can handle it. Big acidity on the palate is perfect for your toughest-to-pair- dishes involving asparagus or artichoke.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: grilled fish, chicken breast in a white wine sauce with fresh asparagus.

Pair this medium-bodied, vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with food. Bennys with a rich Hollandaise sauce, asparagus and herb quiches -- this SB from the Darling wine region can handle it. Neil Ellis Groenekloof 2017 is liquid lime on the palate with mineral and peppery flavours on the palate. First produced in 1991, this winery is certified for Integrity and Sustainability by Sustainable Wine South Africa. - Community Wine Reviews
