Ernie Els Sauvignon Blanc

£14.90

The 2017 Ernie Els Sauvignon Blanc shows zingy, bright, tropical fruits that abound from the nose and palate. A mélange of guava, pineapple and lemon curd lead to a medium bodied but intensely flavoured, textured palate. Hints of wet earth and bell pepper give complexity and depth, albeit in a soft and comforting manor. The linear finish shows a mineral, gravelly edge that balances the pure-fruited stance. This is amazingly open and entertaining while young and shows the terrific 2017 vintage.
