BLANKBottle DOK 2013

Not your average "dry white".
Not your average “dry white”.

W.O. Elgin. Made from grapes grown on Doctor Gary van Wyk’s Valley Road farm and hence the name. A blend of mainly Riesling plus Semillon and a little Sauvignon Blanc. Lime and lemon, some cassis typical of Bordeaux-style white blends, some petrol typical of Riesling and a hint of spice. Good fruit concentration, coated acidity and a nicely savoury finish. Has plenty of interest. Price: R89 a bottle.

Score: 90/100.
