I'm a big fan of this producer and of South African wines in general. However, the last tasting of the '07 Sauvignon Blanc didn't show well. Typical zesty finish with hints of honey dew melon and gooseberries--but the overwhelming nose of raw green peppers coupled with a slightly unbalanced palate. I enjoy the 'green' notes in many new-world sauvignon blanc, but there wasn't enough fruit notes to provide balance.
A fine example of what a Sancerre should taste like. Crisp, clean with lovely fruit notes of gooseberry, green melon and figs.
Huge fruit on this one--packed with blackberry and cherry notes, and a very soft finish. Good table wine--but beware of the big fruit. Had it with Rendang (indonesian spicy beef stew) and it was pretty good, thanks to that heavy load of fruitiness. Lacks complexity that most wines in this price range offer.
