Description

A lean, crisp wine that’s extremely flexible when it comes to food. It’s not a great fan of butter or cream, but when served with goat’s cheese or dishes with leafy green herbs and vegetables it truly shines. Show off your pairing skills by serving fresh Snapper ceviche, spicy Shrimp ravioli or a Goats cheese salad with asparagus and beetroot next time you open a bottle of the Diemersfontein Sauvignon Blanc.

This wine has a light yellow colour with a green tinge. The Diemersfontein Sauvignon Blanc displays fresh acidity and a delightful spectrum of ripe tropical fruits like pineapple and passion fruit, ending with zingy lime, a textured mouthfeel and a lingering finish.
