Cederberg Sauvignon Blanc 2010

A crisp wine with notes of green figs, white asparagus and hints of gooseberry on the nose. These vines grow above the snowline and show true Cederberg colours with a trademark flinty finish. Expect the flintiness and minerality to intensify with age. "2010's Sauvignon is for me definitely one of the best Sauvignons I have made in the last twelve years" David, the winemaker.
