Tidy.

Tidy.

I sometimes despair at how lacklustre the wines of our major producer-wholesaler Distell are  but there’s nothing wrong with the Fleur du Cap Unfiltered Sauvignon Blanc 2014 (approximate retail price: R100 a bottle). Indeed, it’s as fine an example of reductively made, clean and fresh Savvy you could hope to find.

From a combination of Darling and Elgin grapes, it’s currently very primary with notes of pear, lime, gunsmoke and just a hint of fresh herbs on the nose. Good fruit purity and snappy acidity on the palate – it’s pleasantly lean and dry to drink. Abv 13.8%, RS 1.6g/l, TA 6.6g/l and pH 3.45. More, please.

Score: 90/100.
