Deetlefs Sauvignon Blanc 2000

Innovative winemaking resulted in a wine with a soft green-yellow appearance and ripe fruit flavours. Good weight on the middle palate is complimented by gooseberry flavours, which is balanced by a crisp freshness and a long fine finish. The Deetlefs trademark of mouth feel and elegance is very distinct in this ripe style Sauvignon Blanc.
