rattlesnake sauvignon blanc

  • STEENBERG BARREL FERMENTED SAUVIGNON BLANC 2022

    Wine Club price R157.25 p/b

    Previously known as Rattlesnake Sauvignon Blanc.

    Both terroir and treatment are immediately evident in the glass. A resonance of dill, capers, greengage, and wet granite 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 citrus zest, vanilla and apricot. 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.
