Springfontein Terroir Selection Sauvignon Blanc 2010

A bright green tint shows that the wine is still young. Depending on the temperature of the wine, hints of grass and green pepper will be evident on the nose but a fruit basket of tropical fruit nuances will also be evident at certain temperatures.

The full body from the Sur Lie ageing will make this wine the ideal companion for white meat and non spicy food.
