Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc 2018
|Region||South Africa, Walker Bay|
Bottle ShopBright, juicy, and delicious with loads of aromatics and a long, clean, dry finish. It is super complex in the pricepoint for Sauvignon Blanc from anywhere in the world, and it truly gives the New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs at $15-20 a run for their money.
VinousThe 2018 Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc has a clean, fresh gooseberry, nettle and grass clipping bouquet. The palate is well balanced with quite a rich opening but maintains tension, thanks to a fine bead of acidity and pleasant salinity toward the finish. A delicious Sauvignon Blanc.
