Made in a definite herbaceous style, this Sauvignon Blanc also offers tropical undertones of gooseberries that add fruit to the palate. Well-balanced with zesty acidity; fresh & crisp.
Very refreshing on its own and lovely with crisp salads, light seafood dishes, tapas, steamed green asparagus and aioli.

There is a touch of roasted herbs in this wine, but it is very subtle and under control. Riebeek Cellars, located on the western coast of the Cape Province of South Africa, was established over 70 years ago.
