Whereas the 2013 vintage of Trizanne Signature Wines Sauvignon Blanc made by Trizanne Barnard contained a 5% portion of barrel fermented Semillon, the 2014 vintage is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Another point of difference is that the 2013 had an abv of 13.5% while the 2014 is only 13% making it a little leaner but also somehow purer (both are W.O. Elim).
The nose shows a top note of blossom plus white peach, tangerine and a hint of white currant. The palate is clean and wonderfully fresh, the finish long and saline. Great fruit expression and balance – overall a very pretty wine. Approximate retail price: R90 a bottle.
