Aquiline, Sauvignon Blanc 2022

(2023) This is a wine from the Western Cape of South Africa, most of the fruit sourced in the Franschhoek valley. It's a very European-style Sauvignon, with little trace of the more pungent, herbaceous aromas of some, but majoring more on ripe orchard fruits and a fat lemony freshness. It has good texture; a surprisingly creamy edge to the mouthfeel, and again that ripe, pristine fruitiness that is well-balanced through to the finish. An ideal 'cellar defender' - one of those modestly priced bottles to pull from the rack on a Tuesday evening without having to worry too much about it.
