MENU's Wine of the Week. Rousseau Sacharia Sauvignon blanc 2018 awarded it 94 points in 2019. It is a wooded Sauvignon Blanc using Elgin grapes. Andre does a whole bunch press and then the juice goes into French 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill barrels to ferment. It has a powder puff nose, then green leaves appear with a whiff of smoke. Grapes, crisp limes, lemon, wood hints on the end; a smooth texture and long flavours
This impressive wine is now available at many of the top restaurants in the Cape like La Colombe and their other restaurants, Fyn, etc. We scored it 18/20. It definitely has the potential to age, as the 2016 & 2017 we tasted showed. It was full on the palate with lovely rich fruit, a very good food wine with blackcurrant hints and light wood on the end
