Indaba Sauvignon Blanc 2009

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.

“Indaba” is the Zulu word for “a meeting of the minds,” or a traditional gathering of tribal leaders for a sharing of ideas. The brand was created as a celebration of the democratization process in South Africa, and from its inception, the wines have conveyed the spirit of South Africa to American consumers. A portion of the proceeds from the Indaba wines supports a scholarship for formerly disenfranchised South Africans who are interested in wine-related careers. Through growth of the brand and via the affiliated scholarship, Indaba is proud to be a part of the positive changes that are altering the face of South Africa’s wine industry. Read less

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

With many stylistic similarities to the much heralded sauvignon blancs of New Zealand, South Africa's many well-priced, crisp and refreshing versions of that terrific variatal are fast gaining in popularity (as evidenced by our rapidly expanding South African section). This pretty white shows all the rich passion fruit and zesty gooseberry you've come to expect from this grape, at a price that's hard to beat. A perpetually great match for seafood of all stripes.

The 2000 Sauvignon Blanc reveals Thai lemon grass and roasted green pepper aromas and flavors. This light to medium-bodied, silky-textured wine has appealing richness and freshness to its flavorful, spicy, and easygoing character. A lovely quaffing wine, it should be consumed over the next 18 months.

Good lime and sweet pea flavors, with a nice hint of straw too. Clean and fresh. Drink now.

Gooseberry, citrus and minerals comprise the nose and the palate of this lively, approachable white. Restrained and elegant, the wine features a crisp minerality beneath the fruit to give it poise. A refreshing warm weather choice.
