David Nieuwoudt Ghost Corner Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc 2015
By Christian Eedes, 10 January 2017
Sauvignon Blanc from Elim tends to the greener end of the flavour spectrum but what if you made it employing a spontaneous fermentation and maturation for nine months in barrel?
The Ghost Corner Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc 2015 by David Nieuwoudt shows lime, Granny Smith apple and white peach plus notes of fynbos and white pepper on the nose. It’s rich and full on the palate with a creamy texture and savoury finish. I found it particular and demanding of food, perhaps some grilled yellowtale or other game fish. Wine Cellar price: R205 a bottle.
