About this wine

The Fairview Darling Sauvignon Blanc 2017 is textured and complex, yet as refreshing as the cool Atlantic winds that blow across this Darling-based vineyard.  Winemaker Anthony de Jager attributes this Sauvignon Blanc’s  fresh minerality to the red oakleaf soils and maritime climate in which the vines are grown. But terroir isn’t the only talking point: this classic example of Sauvignon Blanc meets all expectations with aromas of tropical fruit, passionfruit and citrus on the nose, whilst fresh grapefruit flavours give way to lime undertones which contribute to the wine’s generous mid-palate and lingering crisp finish.  A perfect apéritif, but also delicious with white meats including chicken and pork, seafood dishes or goat cheeses.

    string(567) "Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, Marlborough, Darling, Margaret River… Villages and regions which all have one thing in common; their own individual take on Sauvignon Blanc. The variety has classic zingy freshness, citrus notes and in the case of Marlborough in particular, gooseberry aromatics and flavours. Very pure, it can often be opulent yet also the opposite, with taut mineral notes. A classic, modern varietal with huge popularity, usually unoaked, there are an increasing number of food-focused expressions with a little barrel maturation adding texture and lift."
