I had my good friend Erin over to sample this bottle from Durbanville Hills a few weeks ago. Random coincidence: my family booked a trip to South Africa for November and Erin has traveled extensively through the region. We chatted South African vineyards and safari’s (what a fantastic mix…France has nothing on you!)
This Sauvignon Blanc boasts seamlessly layered flavours ranging from tropical fruit to fig, lime, guava and gooseberry, leading up to a crisp finish. Pale green in colour, this wine is a combination of fruit flavours and green pepper with a crisp acidity and full mouth-feel. On the nose, it boasts a delightful combination of papaya, grapefruit, lime and winter melon with green fig and prickly pear flavours coming to the surface as the wine changes temperature.
