MENU's Wine of the Week. De Grendel Koetshuis Sauvignon Blanc 2017

We are members of the De Grendel Wine Club, so we get notifications of the release of their new wines. The latest release was of their Koetshuis Sauvignon Blanc and we were keen to taste it as we do rather like the way Charles Hopkins makes this wine

The nose is quite tropical, with hints of elderflower and lime with granadilla, fig leaf and citrus, complex. On the palate, crisp limes and green melon; more granadilla and gooseberry with hints of green pepper pyrazines on the end. Full, layered and warm despite its 12.5% alcohol

Lynne has promoted it to her Birthday wine, it is that good. (Every year Lynne nominates a favourite wine and John responds by buying her a case for her birthday in August)
