This racy bottling single-handedly put South Africa on the map as a source of world class Sauvignon Blanc. One of the Cape's most heralded and sought-after wines, it garners 90+ scores vintage after vintage. Vivid tropical fruit aromas give way to succulent, mouth-filling flavors of guava, lychee, gooseberry, lime, and fresh cut grass, supported by a bracing jolt of acidity.
Rather uncompromising, high-toned nose shows a strong peppery quality and a whiff of asparagus. Dense and supple in the mouth, sweeter and riper than the nose suggests, with an exotic suggestion of pineapple. Could use a bit more nuance and grip, though. Not really harmonious today or especially long.
