Blouberg White Blend | Stellenbosch, South Africa
Sauvignon Blanc (60%), Sémillon (20%), and Cape Riesling (20%). A brilliant green. Aromas of asparagus and green figs. Off-dry lemony flavours with a crisp and fresh finish follow through on the palate. Go with Pesto Pasta, Leafy Green Salads.

65% Grenache Blanc, 25% Sauvignon and 10% Roussanne. Medium-bodied, clean with bright acidity and good texture, it has lots of buttered grapefruit, sappy herbs, mint and hint of passion fruit. Pairs with Thai Green Chicken Curry, Grilled Halibut with Mango-Avocado. Website
