Kumkani Sauvignon Blanc 2008

2009 Decanter World Wine Awards - Silver Medal
Expressive varietal aromas of ripe gooseberry with underlying notes of grass and green pepper. Beautiful pallet with the same characteristics initially picked up on the nose, well balance with refreshing natural acidity and long finish.

Serve with smoked salmon and cream cheese salad or smoked snoek paté.
