2008 Sir Lambert Sauvignon Blanc 91 Points

Fragrant gooseberries, intense, complex salty minerality, juicy and chewy a far cry from the simple and unappealing 2007, 6 months lees contact have resulted in a sound mid palate, very good expression of a moderate climate Sauvignon Blanc.
From a vineyard compose of sand and limestone soil at a stone throw from the Atlantic ocean (3km) in Lambert’s bay on the West Coast 200 km north of Cape Town, to date this is the only wine certified Wine of Origin Lambert's Bay and definitely add value to a list in terms of showcasing the amazing diversity of South African terroir.
Now until 2013
