Boschendal Sauvignon Blanc 1685 2008
A blend dominated by 92% Sauvignon Blanc with 8% Semillon. Grapes are from vineyards planted on decomposed granite, stoney clay soils and rich alluvial soils, at altittudes ranging from 150-400 meters above sea level.
This zippy, fresh sip starts with tropical fruit and citrus aromas, followed by balanced citrus and asparagus flavors. All of it dances on a racy acidity. An elegant, world-class white.
