Diemersdal Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2012
By Christian Eedes, 5 September 2012
For some time I’ve advocated a shift from ultra-green Sauvignon Blanc, but it is possible for the pendulum to swing too far the other way. The Reserve 2012 from Durbanville property (R75 a bottle) is big and rich with plenty of thiol-derived tropical fruit plus a certain “sweaty” character. It’s a serious effort but ultimately I think it’s over the top. Score: 15.5/20.
