Wine of the Week for August 24, 2009

Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - $11.95
Style: W2

South Africa

There seems to be an increase in selections in the under-$10 category. I hope this trend continues with gems like this one. Look for rich grass, gooseberry and passionfruit on the nose. The palate is racy, with a cleansing acidity, passionfruit flavour and just a touch of citrus. Very good body and excellent length; this would be ideal to partner with salads or shellfish.
