Diemersdal Eight Rows Sauvignon Blanc 2016
By Christian Eedes, 16 March 2017
Among the many versions of Sauvignon Blanc from Durbanville property Diemersdal, Eight Rows is one of the more premium, the 2016 being a real blockbuster.
A complex nose of lime, green apple, cantaloupe and white peach as well as fynbos and a hint of reduction. The palate displays super-concentrated fruit and a creamy texture with coated acidity. As powerful as Sauvignon Blanc gets, this is not for sissies. Port2Port price: R160 a bottle.
