Sauvignon Blanc

South Africa’s most popular white grape variety, fresh and crisp Sauvignon Blanc is very rarely oaked, making it an easy-drinking option. To retain freshness in the wine, the more successful Sauvignon Blanc producers tend to come from cooler climates (think Elgin and the Cape Coastal region). Widely speaking, there are two styles of Sauvignon Blanc – the greener, grassier style with aromas of asparagus and green pepper, and a tropical-fruit style with hints of guava and granadilla.
