Tasting Notes:

This Sauvignon Blanc PC shows nice flavours of pear, granadilla and gooseberry flavours with some green fig notes also present. The palate is complex and pure in fruit, well balanced with a fresh acidity. Fresh and ready to drink now, but will mature into a more complex wine.

Between two mighty oceans, on the southern tip of Africa, lies the historic Saxenburg Wine Farm. Here, memory and the seasons conspire with the cellarmaster’s craft to produce unique wines of consistent and exceptional quality. For centuries wayfarers bound for the East Indies found hospitality and relief at the Fairest Cape. At Saxenburg we extend this tradition and invite you to visit our world.

Only healthy grapes in cool conditions are harvested.

No wood.

Skin contact for up to 18 hours, pressed, juice settled, clear juice fermented, with five different yeasts and long lees contact for complexity. There was no malolactic fermentation.

Food pairing

It is excellent with seafood, salads and light chicken dishes \r\n
