Professional Wine Reviews for Cape Point Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc is blended with 5% Semillon cropped at six tons per hectare and sees nine months on the lees in tank and in barrel. It has a pretty bouquet leaning more toward the tropical rather than herbaceous spectrum. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, impressive weight in the mouth with lovely greengage, nettle and gooseberry notes flourishing toward the finish. This is another excellent Sauvignon Blanc from winemaker Duncan Savage.

Additional Information on Cape Point Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Winery Cape Point

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is widely considered to be one of the finest varietals of white wine grapes. The green skinned fruit is notable for ripening relatively early in the year, due to the fact that it prefers milder temperatures and cannot maintain its distinctive flavors in hot climates. As such, it has become a favorite grape varietal for wineries in many very different countries around the world, where it can benefit from brisk, coastal breezes and mild early summers. Sauvignon Blanc is revered for its freshness and zesty character, and generally produces wines which are dry and very crisp on the palate. However, there are a wide variety of wines produced from this wonderfully versatile grape – with many wineries preferring to age the fermented juices in oak, or allowing malolactic fermentation to add a creamier, buttery finish to the grassy and tropical, citrus flavors it often carries.

Country: South Africa

As geographically diverse country, with everything from lush green valleys to areas of arid desert, mountainsides and river estuaries, South Africa unsurprisingly produces a huge range of excellent wines. Regions such as the Breede River Valley consistently impress with their Semillon wines and the lush, fruity Ruby Cabernets grown and processed here, and the cooler region of Overberg is attracting much attention as a result of their silky Pinot Noir bottles. However, all over the oceanic tip of this fascinating country, traditional methods dating back over three hundred years are combining with modern technologies to produce some of the finest examples of New World wines to be found anywhere on the globe.
