Ken Forrester Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is frankly fruit on the nose but it’s very green fruit, all cactus leaf, sage, dried cilantro, poblano chili and green plum. This seems a touch sweet in the mouth with more of that green fruit character accented with some gooseberry, but mostly rather earthy/savory in nature. The acid is bright and well-balanced by the creamy richness of fruit but this seems to be rather atypical, though the finish does show good length and nice lime pith fruit. With air this gains a cleaner fruit aspect, but it remains somewhat particular and savory. 84pts

Sauvignon Blanc 2009 - Ken Forrester: Sauvignon Blanc 2009 - Weißwein von Ken ForresterDieser Weißwein erfreut mit einem Bukett aus tropischen Früchten, leicht grasigen Noten und mineralischen Tönen von Feuerstein. Der Sauvignon Blanc 2009 von Ken Forrester bezaubert mit seinem intensiven, komplexen Aromenspiel aus tropischer Ananasfrucht. Er präsentiert ein Finale, welches von Zitrus geprägt wird, das ist typisch für Sauvignon Blanc Trauben, die in kühleren Regionen gedeihen. Der Sauvignon Blanc schließt mit einem trockenen und knackigen Ton ab.Ein hervorragender Wein zu Fisch, Geflügel und Pasta.Weingut: Ken ForresterLand: SüdafrikaRegion: StellenboschRebsorte: 100% Sauvignon BlancInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,0 g/lRestsüße: 5,0 g/lLagerfähgikeit: 2-4 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 6-8 °C Weißwein > Südafrika > Stellenbosch
