Clean, fresh and lively Sauv - bound to put you in a great mood!

    • This super fresh and fruity white oozes with refreshing flavors like crisp lime and grapefruit. Lip-smackingly delicious!
    • Winemakers don't come much more talented and passionate than Carmen. She's weaved her magic on a premium, pure and pristine South African Sauv - and it's divine.
    • Enjoy a nice chilled glass on the patio and while you're watching the sun go down. It doesn't get more perfect than that.

Aging advice
It's beautiful and fresh now, but because of the remarkable concentration and depth of flavors, this wine has great aging potential. When it's young, the beautiful lime flavors keep this wine fruity and fresh. As it ages, the fruit gets richer and more complex.

Serving advice
SB must be enjoyed cold, but not ice cold. It's too cold if the beautiful aromas and flavors are hidden. I love enjoying this wine slightly chilled, when most of the true flavors come to the fore.

Local food match
I prepare a beautiful fresh pesto from homegrown basil and cilantro. It also pairs well with freshly-made Tagliatelle pasta with pine nuts.
