The Sauvignon Blanc was presented to me blind and my immediate reaction was “That’s the way I like ‘em.” Peach, good concentration and texture (which is to say not lean and mean) and a nicely saline finish.

Turns out there’s lots to recommend Le Cap Maritime Sauvignon Blanc 2011. “A coastal venture by Boekenhoutskloof” reads the label and cellarmaster Marc Kent, who’s not averse to the variety having served Klein Constantia Perdeblokke at his wedding, reveals it was made to provide international clients with “something different” – grapes from Elgin and Napier, the wine featuring some exposure to old barriques.

It’s available locally at Lizette’s Kitchen in Hermanus where it appears on the wine list for R100 a bottle, which I can assure you represents fantastic quality relative to price.

Score: 88/100.
