The white Bordeaux is a zesty and lightly colored white wine with flavours of gooseberry and melon. A few examples are oak-aged and have a lightly creamy texture generally using Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc.
They are largely to be found in the more classic and cool regions of the Cape-Stellenbosch and Constantia-and further down the Peninsula from Constantia, where Cape Point Vineyards has for a few years been making a first-class wooded Sauvignon/Semillon blend. There are two major styles of White Bordeaux: Light & Fruity or Rich & Creamy. Light & Fruity styles make up the majority of White Bordeaux and are generally cheaper. Rich & Creamy White Bordeaux wines are made in a specific region and tend to be expensive. Light & Fruity this is the most readily available style of White Bordeaux. Expect big flavours and aromas of citrus, grapefruit, lemon, gooseberry and lime along with grass, freshly-wet concrete, honey, passion fruit and honeysuckle flower.
