The lively flavours of our Sauvignon Blanc linger on the palate with zesty crispness. Lemony, with hints of grass and asparagus. Ripe and very flavourful. While ready for immediate enjoyment, this wine will mature with distinction.
Although Sauvignon Blanc originated in the Bordeaux region of France, South African wine producers tend to focus on new methods and new tastes, which gives our wine an extra complexity, while introducing a modern, crisp texture. With the tremendous differences in the production of this varietal, it is no surprise that many experts are concluding that Sauvignon Blanc wines from South Africa are some of the best in the New World. Not surprisingly, they are among the most popular wines on our export market!
South African winemakers are able to bring a range of flavour and variety. Depending on the area the wine comes from, the most common descriptions of South African Sauvignon Blanc include: green vegetables (asparagus, bell pepper, green bean), lemongrass, herbs, melon, pear, pineapple, citrus fruits (grapefruit, lemon, lime), freshly cut grass or hay, fig, toast and even gunflint.
Connoisseurs can expect to enjoy a delightfully crisp, dry and beautifully balanced white wine when tasting a glass of Kleinberg Sauvignon Blanc.
The wine is perfect for opening and enjoying immediately but a year or two in the cellar will not affect the distinctive citrusy zing of Kleinberg Sauvignon Blanc.
