Whalehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2021

R132.00

Refreshing and refined. This cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc from Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley vineyards combines tropical, saline and mineral notes giving a true sense of place. Intense, yellow passionfruit and guava notes are derived from riper grapes exposed to late afternoon sun, while more shady vineyard rows produce berries with flinty aromas and hints of apricot blossoms and white pear. Serve chilled for maximum enjoyment.
