Celebrated as one of South Africa’s most popular varietals, Sauvignon Blanc wines are renowned for its easy-drinking crisp flavours, with the ability to delight amateur and experienced palates. The annual International Sauvignon Blanc day, which takes place this year on 6 May, will shine a spotlight on the diverse and expressive nature of this extremely sought-after varietal. How better to celebrate this day than to sip on a chilled glass of the award-winning Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc?
Boasting delightful scents of grapefruit, winter melon and lime with a hint of guava and freshly cut grass on the nose, and a fresh combination of yellow citrus, lime, sugar snaps and asparagus on the palate, the Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc can be enjoyed on its own or with light seafood and chicken dishes. Recently awarded a gold medal at the prestigious 2016 Michelangelo International Wine and Spirit Awards, the wine is a firm favourite amongst Sauvignon Blanc fans.
The Durbanville wine ward is considered one of the Cape’s coolest wine regions, and the Durbanville Hills winery - situated on the rolling hills with magnificent views of Table Mountain and Table Bay - experiences the ideal weather conditions for the Sauvignon Blanc grapes, allowing them to develop their full-flavoured character.
All Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc vintages are available from a range of retail outlets nationwide, the Durbanville Hills cellar or visit durbanvillehills.co.za for more information.
This wine pairs beautifully with Seared Scallops and Prawns with Garlic Sabayon.
