Lime and lime zest dominate this jazzy SB, both in the aromas and the palate. Finish has a strip of jalapeno pepper in it, very distinctive. Great with chicken fajitas, ceviche, etc.
Light, with tones of grapfruit, but not too citrusy. Not too grassy like some others from this region. Wonderful wine, my favorite sauvignon blanc from New Zealand.
Clean and crisp. Citrus and fresh cut grass on the nose. Very drinkable.
Nice acidity. Would have preferred a bit more minerality.
External Reviews for Sauvignon Republic Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch
Bright, pale yellow. Aromas of citrus and tropical fruits, fresh herbs, anise and gooseberry. Supple and intense, with some CO2 perking up the flavors of citrus pith, grapefruit and minerals. Brisk and dry but not austere. Finishes with a firm edge and good dusty persistence.
Wine & Spirits ReviewThis wine's cut-grass greenness is soft rather than piercing, its zesty spice lasting with the clarity of the fruit.Wine Tasting NotesClassic pale-straw color with rich pineapple, grapefruit, and tropical fruit layers and a touch of herbal "green" Sauvignon notes. Multiple vineyard sources allowed the assembly of a blend that showcases fruitiness and refreshing acidity supported by a surprising richness and length of finish.
From Stellenbosch producer Sauvignon Republic Cellars, this wine has an undeniably South Africa character, with its tropical fruit aromas and flavors mingled with a crisp minerality. It's clean and crisp but full of upfront flavor.
