Sauvignon Blanc 2022, Steenberg

£15.95 per bottle

About this wine

The 2022 Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc, pale-straw in colour with an ever so slight green hue, hypnotises with a seductive bouquet showing fresh cape gooseberry, nettle, lemon zest, granny smith apple pith, and white peach. This cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc has a sumptuous entry tied to an enduring length. The lifting acidity maintains a lively flavour on the palate with citrus blossom and quince while maintaining a distinctive mineral core derived from the Steenberg terroir.

Ageing potential: All the elements of this wine will enable it to bottle age well over the next 2-5 years.

Alcohol: 14.19% ABV

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."
