Klein Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc 2016


This light Sauvignon Blanc is a fresh, crisp wine. On the nose, tropical flavors of peach, guava, pineapple and ripe passion fruit. Medium bodied with a bright acidity adding freshness with an aftertaste which makes you long for the next sip.

The wine can be drunk on its own as an aperitif or with white meats and pastas, tomato based dishes and light salads.
