Professional Wine Reviews for Savage White 2017

Rated 93 by Wine Spectator
Captivating flavors of marzipan and cardamom frame the lemon cream, baked apple and chamomile notes in this enticing white. This is light- to medium-bodied, featuring vibrant acidity that joins the mineral elements for a lively finish. Built to age gracefully, but delicious now. Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Chenin Blanc. Drink now through 2026. 576 cases made, 58 cases imported.
Rated 93 by Vinous Media
The 2017 Savage White, which underwent a 6- to 8-month ferment (the longest ever) is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Sémillon and was matured in used barrels for 10 months. It has a very fragrant bouquet of peony, lemon curd and a touch of apricot blossom, very nuanced but compelling. The palate is taut and linear on the entry and quite saline on the mouth, with a slightly Muscat-like finish. Utterly delicious and quite cerebral too.

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.
