Winemaker's Notes

This coastal region Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and clean. Displays fresh tropical fruit and crisp but ripe apple-like characters with some grassy undertones. Firm structure and good acidity, with a zingy lingering finish.

Learn About Beyond

Beyond wines are the second label fo the well-established Buitenverwachting winery in South Africa.
