Pale in color with citrus on the nose. On the mid pallet this wine displays lots of lovely smooth, well balanced citrus flavors and a touch of green. The wine is medium in finish displaying the same finesse. The wine with food takes a a softer approach. Without food you get a more expressive wine and really get to appreciate all that this wine has to offer. I was quite impressed with this wine. I would give it a 90. Very food friendly. Not a cheap wine but quite good. I would put this up against a New Zealand Sauv Blanc!

Light lemon-yellow in the glass. Fresh and invigorating aromas of green grass, asparagus, lime blossom, fresh herbs and mineral. Dry, medium bodied, with bright and tangy acidity. Crisp finish features savoury herbaceous notes. Good length. A very nice South African Savvy with some Loire and New Zealand influence evident. Enjoy with garden salads, steamed clams, or grilled chicken breast. (VINTAGES panel, May 2011)
