Reviews and Ratings

A lovely, mouth-watering South African white wine made form the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Aromas of lemongrass and chives. Perfect for fresh seafood and roast turkey. MINE: The Sauvignon Blanc wine grapes for Rustenberg (2017) were sourced from the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain. The vineyard is certified sustainable and grapes are planted at 550 metres above the ocean, but also benefit from the cool ocean breezes that flow in from False Bay and Table Bay. Look for fresh gooseberry, and herb and tropical fruit flavours on this refreshing, lively Sauvignon Blanc. Pair with grilled shrimp. OTHER: A grassy style of Sauvignon, with quite a high element of pyrazine bringing bell peppers, tarragon and basil to the mix. All in all this is sleek, crisply fresh and refreshing. Score - Silver (International Wine & Spirit Competition, 2018). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
