Spioenkop 1900 Sauvignon Blanc 2010

On target.

Koen and Lore Roose, importers of South African wine into Belgium for over a decade, acquired land in Elgin in 2005 intent on making their own wine. Their property is situated on a hill called “Spioenkop” resembling a similar hill in KwaZulu Natal which was the site of a battle that took place on 23 and 24 January 1900 during the Anglo-Boer War. The 1900 Sauvignon Blanc 2010 is a blend of Stellenbosch, Botrivier and Elgin fruit. Apples and pears on nose and palate and an acidity which appears soft but sufficient. Elegant and understated rather than arresting. Score: 16/20.
