Buckleberry Sauvignon Blanc 2012
By Melanie, 5 March 2013
The name “Buckleberry” is a corruption of Bucklebury, hometown of Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, apparently chosen to reflect the “exuberance and outgoing nature” of the wine. Not being a royalist, this completely passed me by but I did like the yellow label.
Made by Louis Nel of Louis Wines, it costs R63 from Manuka Fine Wines in Somerset West. Apple, more Golden Delicious than Granny Smith, on the nose and palate and soft acidity make for easy drinking. Score: 15/20.
