Fable Mountain Vineyards, Jackal Bird 2014, Western Cape, South Africa
Tasting Note: Great body, substantial fruit with acidity that impresses.
Medium-intensity gold in color this wine has a nose of vanilla baking spice, bosc pear and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied white blend is medium-plus in flavor intensity.
The medium-plus acidity would pair well with dishes that demand palate cleansing but without being abrasive or overwhelming.
