Caroline's White Wine Review 2016

The second of Caroline Rillema's annual wine reviews, this showcases her pick of the best White Wines out there, those that have scored highly in the industry with points and awards and wines she likes and sells. It is always a tour de force of amazing wines. We always struggle to taste that many wines, but it is such a good tasting
The Table Bay Hotel is right in the middle of the V&A Waterfront. We stopped off in the shopping centre for a quick bite to eat, as we were in between two wine events
On the hotel’s terrace. Not sure why the seal is wrapped up. It was a warm and sunny day.
An appropriately named wine
John Loubser of Steenberg who was showing their Magna Carta, an exciting Constantia Sauvignon Semillon white blend made by JD Pretorius. Seen here with Gordon Newton Johnson, who was showing his 2015 Whitehall Chardonnay
Boschendal are always great at presentation and friendly presenters. This was their Grande Cuvée Brut MCC 2012
An elderly gent tasting the Charles Fox Blanc de Blanc Brut MCC 2013 watched by Melissa Nelsen, Leon Engelke and Zelda Fox
Also at the table was Melissa Nelsen showing her Genevieve Brut MCC 2012
and another good bubbly, Graham Beck Cuvée Clive 2009 presented by Elbè Nortje and Chloe Canderle
Nadia & David Sadie had their David Aristargos 2015 an interesting white blend of Chenin, Clairette Blanc, Viognier and Semillon
