MENU's Wine of the week Nitida CWG 2010 Decorous Sauvignon Blanc made by Bernhard Veller

Lynne bid for and got this wine on the Silent Auction at the Cape Winemakers Guild Auction a couple of years ago. We drank it this week with dinner guests. It shows so well how Sauvignon Blanc can age if kept in suitable storage. It is full of green peppers and elderflowers, gooseberries and lemons, but deep and full rather than racy and crisp. It went so well with the fresh tomato soup we served, adding to the soup, rather than overwhelming it
