ripe with an almost peachy fruitiness on the nose, fresh cut grass, almost dandelion like, subtly floral, very fresh in the mouth, a touch lean but crisp with lemon, herb, and very soft chili notes, there’s a ripe sweetness to the fruit here, nice crisp grassy tones on the rather long and succulent finish which ends with a spearmint finale 88pts

Having commented on the dissimilarity between Indaba's Chenin Blanc and those of the Loire, it's no surprise that when it comes to their 2008 Sauvignon Blanc, nobody would fail to recognize its common grape of origin with those of the Loire, or for that matter Marlborough, Sudsteiermark, or elsewhere in the world. What is remarkable, though, is the refusal of this wine - or at least, of the people behind it - to settle for the obvious, generic gooseberries, passion fruit, cassis leaf, boxwood, or grass clippings that so often spell "Sauvignon." Instead, we are treated here to aromas of grapefruit, honeydew melon, sage and mint. So ingrained are the expectations with this grape that the back label even tells you to expect (among other more plausible candidates) "gooseberry - bell pepper and fresh cut grass," but I certainly don't get much of that! This mouth-filling, downright luscious, refreshing, and cleansing wine finishes with slightly bitter but by no means unattractive notes of herb and peach kernel. If such quality can be rendered for $10, why should we (or the reputation of a wonderful grape) have to put up with 90% of what is nowadays bottled from Sauvignon Blanc?

Fresh-cut lime and herb notes lead to a brisk, racy finish. Drink now.

A lime-scented white with gooseberry flavors, this is light in the middle, refreshing in the end. For cracked crab.

Granny Smith apple and clementine flavors are the backbone of this wine, with additional accents of white florals and green plum skin. Medium weight with aggressive but enjoyable acidity and a zippy finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Refreshing gooseberry, citrus and tropical fruit flavors are backed by a racy jolt of acidity in this crisp, clean Sauvignon Blanc. Notes of bell pepper and fresh cut grass follow through on the zingy finish. It makes a great partner for salads, crabcakes, grilled vegetables, and citrus-accented seafood dishes.
