Noordhoek Sauvignon Blanc

Noordhoek Sauvignon Blanc

Noordhoek Sauvignon Blanc 2018

A refreshing coastal style, combining elements of white grapefruit and a hint of floral fynbos. The ocean seems to dance in your glass, notes of nori and oyster shell as well as a fresh misty sea breeze takes you right onto the beautiful Noordhoek beach. The palate shows elegant layers of fruit with a steely minerality finished off by a fresh and vibrant acidity that creates a long lingering palate length. This wine is showing beautifully right now and will continue to develop for months to come. 2020 – 24
