Durbanville 2009 Sauv blanc

Stopped by Walkers Fish Market for their free Oyster Thursdays! Vicky and Sylvie the bartenders were taking care of me this evening and recommended this wine. It is pale in color mild on the nose. On the mid pallet are lots of lovely green grass and citrus fruits. The finish is slightly tart and lives on to build in the mouth lingering nicely. I had it with oysters and it went well. I would give it an 88 or so. Quite a good deal for the money.
