  • STEENBERG BARREL FERMENTED SAUVIGNON BLANC 2021

    Wine Club price R148.75 p/b

    Previously known as Rattlesnake Sauvignon Blanc.

    Your same favourite wine with new name and a fresh new look! We have released the new packaging of Steenberg Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc featuring an elegant, contemporary aesthetic.

    Both terroir and treatment are immediately evident in the glass. A resonance of golden hay, elderflower, white peach and greengage marry on both the nose and palate. Acidity and spice form the backbone, dominating on the palate, while a pithy yet creamy texture rounds out the overall mouthfeel. The textured, juicy palate shows quince, nasturtium and lime. A lingering herbaceous and mineral finish completes the experience. This wine will be enhanced by a food pairing such as shellfish, or a Thai curry accented by ginger and lemongrass. Drink now, but wait five to seven years for a truly evolved experience.
