Professional Wine Reviews for Savage White 2013

Rated 93 by Robert Parker
The 2013 White is a blend of 56% Sauvignon Blanc and 44% Semillon, the fruit sourced by Duncan Savage from numerous vineyards around Kaaimansgat for the former and Villiersdorp for the latter. The wine is fermented in 500-liter used oak casks, 25% new, where it ages for 11 months. It has a very refined bouquet with scents of beeswax, honeysuckle, jasmine and touches of praline in the background. The palate is very well balanced with beautifully effervescent orange zest, guava, apricot and honeysuckle notes and a supremely focused, classy finish. Quite simply, this is one of South Africa's finest white wines - and I am saying that because I've tasted hundreds of them and this comes very near the summit.

Additional Information on Savage White 2013

Winery: Savage

Country: South Africa

Perhaps the most famous and well respected of all the wine regions in South Africa is that of Constantia, which holds many of the oldest and most traditional wineries in the country. Here, the temperate climate receives the Atlantic winds which cool the vineyards, and the fertile soil allows the grapes to grow to full ripeness, resulting in highly flavorful wines which are enjoyed around the world. Whilst Sauvignon Blanc varietals make up the most widely exported wines of this region, the rest of the country produces a huge and impressive range of wines, made up from varietals native to many different European countries. From excellent Champagne style sparkling wines, to aromatic fortified examples, fruity reds and refreshing whites, South Africa continues to impress and surprise, with modern techniques and technologies leading the way and producing exceptional results.
