Enigma Sauvignon Blanc Rose
What’s in a word? This wine seems to baffle understanding with its puzzling, ambiguous and inexplicable ways – ‘one of nature’s secrets’. I love the words on the Zorgvliet website describing the surroundings: “At dusk, the valley becomes tranquil and filled with magic, the mountains are painted in the colours of our rainbow nation as the last rays of sunshine greet the valley good night. Share our haven and you will never be the same again as you will become a beholder of the spirit of the Banghoek Valley.”
So what is a Sauvignon Blanc Rosé? It’s a Sauvignon Blanc with a dash of Cabernet Franc added for colour and, of course, an added flavour dimension. Expect fresh gooseberry and kiwi notes with a hint of strawberry, finishing off with a fresh lively acidity.
