Durbanville Sauvignon Blanc
The inaugural vintage of a milestone Sauvignon blanc wine has been released by the 13
wineries of the Durbanville Wine Valley that supplied the grapes for its making. While
collaborations of this scale are rare, it is the region’s reputation for pioneering and award-winning Sauvignon blanc that makes this an outstanding contribution to the pantheon of South African wine.
It’s a dry wine with an alcohol of 13.5%. The colour is a light, lime-green while the wine
itself shows outspoken ester flavours of apple, pear, cold tea, and jasmine and thiols of
tropical citrus, granadilla and blackcurrant.
Traditional lamb with rosemary, thyme & garlic, mushroom dishes, cured meats, Camembert, Boerenkaas, Parmesan, Roquefort.
The food pairing suggests an aperitif or accompaniment to seafood, salad, pasta, and even
light meat dishes.
