Hoopenburg Sauvignon Blanc 2001

This accessible wine has a pale straw colour indicating its youth and vibrancy. The nose is fresh and aromatic, with typical varietal tropical fruit scents of pineapple, grenadilla and melon. It is soft and easy on the palate, but with a lively acidity - a combination that makes for a good drinking wine on its own or with food. Excellent as an aperitif or enjoy with Lobster, Green Asparagus or Fish Bobotie.
