The Goose Upper Langkloof Sauvignon Blanc 89 Points

The Goose Upper Langkloof Sauvignon Blanc 2008 89 Points

Intense gooseberries and blackcurrant leaf, fresh, crunchy, with lovely elegance and finesse, flinty.

Will develop more pea character over the next 12 / 18 month
Grown on stony shale sandstone, northern slopes, harvested end of march at 23 balling and Total Acid of 11.5 gram, outstanding stuff and freshness.

After following Herold wines the since 2004 and now for the first time tasted The Goose, I am convince that the future of striking South African Sauvignon blanc with New Zealand opulence, will be made in that part of the Cape, provided it does not rain in summer…….

The Goose wine is owned by famous South African Golfer, Retief Goosen.
