Nitida Club Select Sauvignon Blanc 2009
By Christian Eedes, 24 November 2011
Hint of Durbanville gravel road dustiness as well as some fynbos on the nose. Weightless intensity and fresh but not too fresh acidity. Lime and white peach flavours initially before subtle pyrazine piquancy on the finish. This was among the winning wines in the 2009 Sauvignon Blanc Top 10 competition where I scored it 17/20. Perhaps a little angular two years ago, it’s now a deeply satisfying drink and I’d give it a perfect 18/20.
