Zonnebloem Sauvignon Blanc 2003

International Wine & Spirit Competition 2004 - Silver
Louw Engelbrecht describes this as a wine of concentrated flavours, with a hint of green pepper, tropical fruit and a flinty character which make for a light-bodied wine with a delectably prominent fruit character.

He recommends enjoying this wine, very slightly chilled, on its own or with chicken and fish dishes.
