Springfield Life from Stone Sauvignon Blanc 2017 vs Special Cuvée Sauvignon Blanc 2017
By Christian Eedes, 27 April 2020
The two examples of Sauvignon Blanc from Robertson property Springfield are always so potent that I usually only venture to broach them with some bottle age. Tasting notes and ratings for the 2017s as follows:
Springfield Life from Stone Sauvignon Blanc 2017
From a vineyard planted on rocky quartz. Intense lime and grapefruit to the fore on the nose but also green bean and blackcurrant. The palate is rich and full with a creamy textured and nicely integrated acidity, the finish long and dry.
CE’s rating: 92/100.
Springfield Special Cuvée Sauvignon Blanc 2017
From a vineyard planted on sandy alluvial soil. Pungent aromatics of lemon, peach, green pepper and cat’s pee. The palate is compact with piercing acidity and a very dry finish. Makes a huge impression.
CE’s rating: 91/100.
