Rustenberg Sauvignon Blanc - Stellenbosch 2021
What a wonderful Sauvignon Blanc. A superb effort from Murray Barlow and his team. Coming from the regions highest vineyards the acidity is protected and is the freshness of the fruit. The nose is bursting with Sauvignon aromas of tropical fruits while still retaining those notes of gooseberry and grass. Hints of passionfruit emerge with oxygen and the crisp, fresh palate is incredible. A wine not to be missed.
