La Motte, The Pierneef Collection, Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Cape South Coast, South Africa
Tasting Note: A spritely, South African sauvignon blanc with flavor concentration.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of green apple, grapefruit, star fruit and lemon citrus.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied sauvignon blanc delivers grassy fruit flavors.
Bottle Note: As a tribute to Jacob Hendrik Pierneef (1866-1957), master in portraying the unadorned beauty of the South African landscape. La Motte presents this premium wine reflecting the noble art of the wine-making and the craftmanship of its vinicultural masters. The wine shows layers of intense fruit – green fig, apple and fruit cocktail. The distinctive freshness and minerality reflect the soils and climates of some of the southernmost sites in Africa.
