Southern Right 2016 (South Africa: Walker Bay)

Name Southern Right 2016
Varietal Sauvignon Blanc
Region South Africa: Walker Bay
Notes "The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc, which comes from 17 different parcels around the Walker Bay area, offers attractive gooseberry, nettle and light chalky scents on the nose that opens nicely with aeration. The palate is balanced with crisp acidity, a touch of spice on the tip of the tongue on the entry, nettle and gooseberry laced with ginger towards the vivacious finish with just a hint of asparagus on the aftertaste." (Wine Advocate)

Additional Notes

"Lively gooseberry and lemon pulp notes stream through, flecked liberally with thyme and tarragon accents. Offers a brisk, refreshing finish. Drink now through 2018. 3,000 cases imported." (Wine Spectator)
