Mulderbosch VineyardsSauvignon Blanc 2019
This Sauvignon Blanc from Mulderbosch shows much complexity by being both inhibited yet wonderfully lively. Aromas of gun flint, graphite and elderflower are offset by more vibrant notes of grapefruit and green figs. The palate grabs attention with salty green olive and sage, and fruity ripe quince, green fig and rock melon. Interestingly, the texture on the palate is almost pithy. This is balanced by crisp, sturdy acidity and a lingering finish.
Pair it with oven-baked goat’s cheese, chicken à la king, char-grilled artichokes, grilled line fish and shellfish, seafood paella, oysters, calamari and smoked salmon.
