External Reviews for Mont Rochelle Sauvignon Blanc Franschhoek Valley
The Ste.-Croix-de-Mont appellation is considered the finest of the trio of sweet wines (with Loupiac and Cadillac) across the Garonne River from Sauternes. This wine is botrytis-affected in a somewhat lighter style than traditional Sauternes.
100% Sauvignon Blanc. Aged in steel. Very crisp, bright and perfectly zingy. Loads of green apples and citrus zest.
Flavors of bright citrus and passion fruit, adorned by fresh green beans and a touch of pepper, define this very refreshing sauvignon blanc. Savor it with bacon-wrapped scallops.
This could be Chilersquo;s most expressive, interesting white Sauvignon. Itrsquo;s got typical prickly pineapple, passion fruit, scallion and pepper notes, and pure citrus flavors backing it all up. The mouthfeel is zesty and spirited, but therersquo;s natural roundness, too. Some licorice adds complexity to the finish.
