Simonsig 2014 Sauvignon Blanc South Africa Sun Bird

Simonsig Estate has bottled Sauvignon Blanc since 1978, giving meticulous attention to site and clonal selection, as well as continuous enhancement in the vineyards. In the last 10 years, Simonsig has mastered their Sauvignon Blanc production and it has become one of the winery's best offerings. The 2014 Sunbird Sauvignon Blanc offers great clarity and expresses aromas and flavors of green melon, asparagus, green figs and subtle hints of pineapple. These tropical notes, plus crisp acidity, makes for a fresh, fruit and long-lasting white wine. This Sauvignon Blanc is named 'Sunbird' for its lively, vibrant appeal. Its green tropical notes are also reminiscent of the vivid Malachite Sunbird that often flies over the Cape's Fynbox Hills where this Sauvignon Blanc is grown. [+]
