Editorial Reviews for Indaba Sauvignon Blanc
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

Petrol at first, tart, acidic
Slightly funky nose opens up to pineapple. Crisp and zesty with sharp acidity.
Very nice value wine. I like the mild acidity that keeps the wine fresh
Great tasting wine for the price!
heavy pineapple and other tropical fruits on the nose with an almost sour taste and a light, noticeable alcohol towards the end. really unbalanced.
External Reviews for Indaba Sauvignon Blanc
Very fresh, with verbena, kaffir lime and fennel notes, showing nice zip through the finish. Contains 4 percent Chenin Blanc. Drink now.
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.
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?
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.
Crisp grass and lemon notes, with a lively finish. Drink now.
Good lime and sweet pea flavors, with a nice hint of straw too. Clean and fresh. Drink now.
Pale green-yellow color. Citrus peel, gooseberry and pepper on the nose. Juicy and spicy in the mouth, with a touch of sweetness but decent cut. I like the combination of spice and subtle sweetness on the gentle finish.
Enticing melon, citrus and tropical fruit aromas lead to fresh, zesty flavors of passion fruit, lime, mango and green fig, supported by a spine of racy acidity. Herbal undertones shine through on the mineral-tinged finish.
