“Douglas Green Sauvignon blanc is a big hit in the UK as well as in South Africa. Ever since the first bottle of Douglas Green wine was produced in 1942 the personal touch and inimitable intuition of talented winemakers have served to keep their vintages at the forefront of the extremely competitive South African wine market. The grapes for this wine come from cooler pockets in Robertson, Bonnievale, Breedekloof and Wellington regions where exceptional phenolic ripeness is achieved, giving loads of varietal personality, grace and natural balance to the wine. Particular regional selection allows for added complexity and dimension by final blending of components in the cellars.
Pale gold with a vibrant green tinge. Enticing pineapple, gooseberry and granadilla aromas that carry through to a crisp dry entry and a surge of tropical flavours carrying through from the nose and finishing with a feisty acidity and delicate citrus twang.
A light bodied playful dry white that is delicious served well chilled as a refreshing aperitif or easy drinking quaffer. Great with any sushi, fish or seafood as well as lemon and herb chicken, pesto inspired Italian dishes or fresh asparagus and green salads.
Best enjoyed within 2 years of vintage.”
