Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc 2011

By , 7 December 2011

Summer lovin' had me a blast.

When this wine came up for review in the FNB Sauvignon Blanc Top 10 competition at the end of September, it divided the panel on account of the love-it-or-hate-it mercaptan-induced “sweatiness”. This character seems much less in evidence now and I’m inclined to like it quite a bit more than I did then. A totally attractive Constantia herbaceousness on the nose before a palate that shows a broad range of flavour from green bean through lime to melon. Good intensity and moderate acidity. Generally, very  well conceived. Score: 16/20.
