The 2016 Ernie Els Sauvignon Blanc explodes on the nose with guava, lime, kiwi fruit and gooseberries. A rather concentrated vintage with a tangy acidity, there is good contrast of tropical fruit and a pebbly texture. Hints of green pepper and figs offer complexity to fruit pastels on a long, soft finish. An exotic wine that already shows its rainbow of bright colours.
Personal food pairing:
I have enjoyed this wine with many varieties of food ranging from seafood to red meats and I have not been let down, excellent value for money wine.
