Our second Sauvignon Blanc vintage continues in the Seven Springs style. The wine has a delicate perfume, tantalizing ripe fruit on the palate with good lingering minerality. Enjoy ripe apples and peaches with hints of the natural vegetation of the area, fynbos , and fresh herbs. It is a light, refreshing wine.
Leading South African wine writer Angela Lloyd wrote: “As pale and bright as one would expect of a young wine, it has great presence without being showy thanks to the purity and restraint of its more tropical style fruit. A year in the bottle has polished the edginess of extreme youth without diminishing the wine’s vitality and freshness, such attributes being enriched by lees ageing. This gives a sense of weight without lessening the gentle, pure fruit and clean, dry finish. Unlike many sauvignons, it’s just as happy enjoyed solo as paired with fresh, unfussy dishes. Ingrid agrees with me, describing it as gentle, charming and graceful.”
