2017 Sutherland Sauvignon Blanc, Thelema*
100% sauvignon blanc
Western Cape / South Africa
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
A very refreshing glass by itself, or pair it with fresh crustaceans or white fish. Copes beautifully with spicy Eastern dishes.
Pale gold in colour with youthful flashes of lime green, the nose is aromatic with pungent 'green' aromas of bell pepper and fresh crushed herbs. On the palate the wine is medium bodied and dry with a mouthwatering streak of minerals, hints of sub-tropical fruit and a layer of grassy gooseberry flavours that merge sublimely with the limey, crisp finish. Elegant and lengthy.
