pineapples and granadilla

Taste: Fresh, fruity and zesty with a crisp bubble and clean palate

Pale straw colour with small lively bubbles; aromas of crisp citrus fruits, herbs, and green apples; on the palate tangy flavours of lemon and green apples, good length to finish – 86/100

Two Oceans 2010 Sauvignon Blanc

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Country: South Africa
Producer: Two Oceans
Alcohol : 11.71  % vol
Appellation : Coastal
Cost: $9.95

Winemaker’s Notes:

Colour: Brilliant light green tint

Bouquet: Upfront tropical fruit flavours, gooseberries followed with a hint of green fig

Taste: An elegant, crisp wine displaying ripe gooseberry flavours on the fore palate backed by tropical fruit and a hint of grassiness that lingers long on the aftertaste.

My Review:

This wine boasts an intense nose exuding floral, tropical fruits and vegetal aromas; is a medium-bodied, elegantly crisp wine with lively acidity which reveals a lingering finish

Pairing:

Two Oceans 2010 Sauvignon Blanc lives in the best of both worlds, it can accompany shellfish and it also fits well with light meats such as pork, lamb and veal; it also matches well with salads, light cheeses, or as a summer patio wine.
