POFADDERBOS SAUVIGNON BLANC 2022
Named for the many encounters with local Puff Adder snake residents, this cool climate Sauvignon blanc is both beautifully expressive of terroir and slow ripening conditions without the loss of flavour.
Passion fruit, grape fruit and blackcurrant on the nose. Creamy and full on the palate with citrus, fynbos and oyster shell minerality complemented by a lovely natural acidity and a long finish.
Pairs well with seafood, asparagus, tomato-based dishes, sushi, salmon and trout and goats cheese.
Serve chilled, ideally 6 to 8 degrees Celsius. Drink now to 2029.
