I fell in love with this winery during my visit to Cape Town South Africa in Nov 2006. Their winery's name in SA is Buitenverwachting (pronounced "bait-in-ver-wok-ting", which means "beyond expectation" in Afrikaans), and EVERY white wine I tried there was amazing. (I wish they'd export the Gewurz, OMG!) So I was quite excited to get my hands on this, the latest vintage of their American-labeled Sauvignon Blanc. I was not disappointed. It was clean, crisp, beautiful, well worth the money. I went back to wine.com for more but found only one bottle remained in stock! ARGH! Must buy more! Summer is too long to go without it!
Bought this due to never having this vintner's product before, and the high points given by the "experts" (WS, RP, whoever it was). But it wasn't nearly as good as THEY portended it to be. OK, nothing special.
This was of great disappointment to me, being a fan of their previous vintages of wines. It was, basically, HARSH to the tongue. Buy Beyond's version of 2008 SB instead. (Reviewed too!)
Expected more, but at least somewhat quaffable. Their SB of the same vintage was TERRIBLE, so at this wasn't.
