Rustenberg Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch Brampton 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

a rich nose with very ripe exotic fruit tones, passion fruit, a little pink grapefruit, roasted green chili, lime leaf, a nice lean mouthfeel with rather ripe fruit tones but retaining decent freshness, this gives a bit of precision and zing in favor of ripe fruit tones and flavor. A bit loose though there is a nice mineral tone on the finish. 86pts

Pale, clear. Grassy, citrus notes. Crisp, dry with nice finish. Good standard $10 sauvignon blanc

Pale yellow. Ripe aromas of spices and pepper with a hint of pineapple. Then fruitier in the mouth than on the nose, offering fresh, nicely intense pineapple and nectarine flavors and an attractive supple texture. Finishes with good length. The best sauvignon to date under this label, which was originally launched as Rustenbergandrsquo;s second label but is now on its own.

A forward style, showing notes of lemon zest, straw and chamomile, with a brisk finish. Drink now.

Sweet grass and soft baby powder notes mingle with the ripe gooseberry and lime aromas and flavors. Brisk and lively with a soft prickly sensation on the palate and a mouthwatering finish.

Fresh, zesty gooseberries can be found in the aromatics of the 2002 Sauvignon Blanc. A superb value, it has an immensely appealing oily texture, loads of ripe gooseberry flavors, and a plump, thick medium-bodied personality perfect for Chardonnay lovers looking for a change of pace. Drink it over the next 2ndash;3 years.

Helles Gelb. Intensiver Duft nach reifer Stachelbeere, Holunderblüte und Karambole. Anregende Textur am Gaumen, wirkt dadurch tänzerisch gepaart mit einer feinen Kräuternote. Im gelbfruchtigen Finale Grapefruitessenz und ein Hauch grüner Paprika.

Pale color. Aromas of dusty stone, licorice, tarragon and mint. Supple, rich and fat, with impressive palate presence. Juicy and detailed but also quite pliant for Sauvignon. Finishes long and smooth. Terrific value.
