Strandveld Adamastor 2007
By Christian Eedes, 21 March 2012
How much pyrazine character is legit on a wine? There was a good deal of it on last night’s Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Strandveld Adamastor 2007 (gravel road dustiness and herbaceousness rather than outright green pepper) but somehow it was appropriate. Lots of other aromas and flavours such as peach and honey and the wine showed good palate weight (thanks in part to clever use of oak) balanced by bright acidity before a long, peppery finish. Score: 17/20.
