Another New Arrival … The Sauvignier 2009

Soon to be released, Hermit on the Hill The Sauvignier 2009 is an equal blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier.  Bottled under screwcap, and to retail for about R50 a bottle, this will hopefully become a summer quaffer (although, with only 3 000 bottles available, it probably won’t last too long).  Harry Haddon had the following to say after tasting the wine earlier this week:

“The nose was like a floral apricot boiled sweet. In the mouth the wine is whisked along by the zippy Sauvignon which tempers the Viognier, not allowing it to dominate.  … Scrumptious. It made me think of pig-tails: bouncy, carefree, and not bovvered”
