Wine of the Week for June 12, 2006

Nederburg Sauvignon Blanc 2005 - $10.75
Style W2
South Africa

There's oodles of oomph here. The nose is dominated by ripe grapefruit and passionfruit, with a hint of asparagus. The palate is wonderfully juicy and mouthfilling, dripping with grapefruit flavour, with a solid acidic core. Rather full with excellent length, it would partner well with quiche, grilled tuna or vegetarian dishes. (LCBO 382713)

Oooo, I love a Sauvignon Blanc that's all grapefruity. I don't think I've tried Nederburg. I'll put that on my ever-growing list.
We did have some KWV Chenin Blanc on the weekend. My mother-in-law really liked it as did my husband. It's great to have something different.
