Winemaker's Notes

One of the best white wines we've tasted from South Africa in a while, especially at this price! Always garners great press vintage after vintage - a really fun white wine.

The flavor of this 100% Sauvignon Blanc is layered with sun-warmed green peppers, limes and white peaches. Pairs beautifully with everything from fish to curry.

"The 2004 Nitida Savignon Blanc and 2004 Nitida Semillon are "exceptional." The Sauvignon Blanc is "stylish and attractive" and the Semillon has "a classy herbal aroma."
Dan Berger's Vintage Experiences

"The 2004 Sauvignon Blanc has "aromas of white grapefruit, gooseberry, mint and anise .... and juicy flavors of lemon, white grapefruit, mint and stone."
-International Wine Cellar

"90 points" to Nitida's 2004 Sauvignon Blanc ... "90 points" to the 2003 Sauvignon Blanc ... "93 points" to the 2002 Sauvignon Blanc.
-Wine & Spirits

The Nitida 2003 Sauvignon Blanc is "weighty and impressive." Highly recommended. Four stars.
