Plaisir de Merle Sauvignon Blanc 2013
By Christian Eedes, 1 December 2013
The Plaisir de Merle Sauvignon Blanc 2013 featuring nearly half Darling grapes and the rest from its own vineyards on the Paarl side of the Simonsberg is a pretty classy offering. Lime, white peach and some pyrazine bite. Lean and fresh, it has a smart analysis with abv at 13.51%, RS at 1.8g/l, TA at 6.6g/l and pH at 3.09. Price: R90 a bottle.
