2018 Savage White, Western Cape

Savoury, textured, with wonderful restraint, this is a spectacular release for Savage White. Notes of greengage, as well as sea spray, and a hint of seville orange peel. So brilliantly balanced.

TASTING NOTES

Duncan Savage is an old hand at making superb white blends and this medley of mostly Sauvignon Blanc with 30% Semillon and 20% Chenin Blanc is another impressive cuvée. Fermented in older wood with 10% malolactic, it's herbal, textured and refreshing with a leesy, cream mid palate and notes of grapefruit and citrus.
