Spier, Signature Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2019, Stellenbosch, South Africa
Tasting Note: A riper-styled sauvignon blanc filled with tropical fruit flavors and at a terrific price point for the quality.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of green apple, quince, pear, white nectarine, lemon citrus and pineapple.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied wine has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a medium-plus finish.
There are hints of midpalate complexity and slight creaminess on the back palate.
Great value and easy to pickup and enjoy without overthinking.
Bottle Note: Like a chef’s signature dish, Spier’s Signature range of wines represents what Spier does best. We are committed to making quality wines that capture each grape variety’s unique flavor. This sauvignon blanc offers intense aromas of gooseberries and passionfruit, with well-balanced acidity and fruit on the palate. Enjoy chilled on its own or with sushi or pasta.
