Very interesting on the nose, complete with passionfruit and fig, unripe grapefruit, an almost smoky minerality, and a pleasant grassiness. Flavors of clamshell and gooseberries appear initially, giving way to a very faint nuttiness, pepper, smoke, and a firm green fig component at the end. The acidity is milder than I was expecting and there is a pretty good balance, although it comes across a little light. This is a pretty good wine overall,although I still think that there are quite a few Sauvignon Blancs being made in South Africa and New Zealand that could replace this wine at the quality and price range. If you’re looking to try a Sauvignon Blanc from Stellenbosch this would be an okay place to start, but better offerings do exist near or slightly above this price range.
