If you’re going to offer two top-end versions of Sauvignon Blanc, then it makes sense to make them stylistically diverse. Uva Mira in Stellenbosch has The Mira 2015 at R135 a bottle and the yet-to-be-released Sing-a-Wing 2015 set to sell at R190 and they do indeed present contrasting representations of the variety under local conditions. Tasting notes and ratings as follows:

Uva Mira The Mira Sauvignon Blanc 2015
Abv: 13% RS: 2g/l TA: 7.5g/l pH: 3.2
Honeydew melon, granadilla and pineapple on the nose and palate. Ripe and full but this offset by tangy acidity. Some might find it a bit too forceful but it’s very well assembled.

#WinemagRating: 89/100.

Uva Mira Sing-a-Wing Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Class act.

Uva Mira Sing-a-Wing Sauvignon Blanc 2015
Abv: 13.5% RS: 2.9g/l TA: 6.2g/l pH: 3.3
Enticing aromatics of pear, white peach, lime and fynbos while the palate possesses weightless intensity. There’s a great line of acidity and the finish is long and pithy. Focused and precise.

#WinemagRating: 92/100.
