Morgenhof Estate Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight and almost chalky on the nose, this shows more mineral and taut fruit notes than many of the wines with subtle herbaceous hints. Light-bodied and fresh in the mouth, this has a creamy edge but remains quite transparent on the palate, showing some lightly tropical, mango-toned fruit flavors along with a nearly steely edge. The back end turns spicy with kiwi fruit notes that flow onto the moderately long citrus, tangerine cream finish, ending with some kiwi skin notes. A nice take on South African Sauvignon Blanc. 89pts
