Steenberg Rattlesnake Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Steenberg Rattlesnake Sauvignon Blanc 2018

White nectarine, grapefruit, blackcurrant and Cape gooseberry marry on both the nose and palate. Acidity and spice form the backbone, dominating on the palate, while a creamy texture rounds out the overall mouthfeel. A lingering mineral finish completes the experience. Although beautifully balanced from date of release, this wine is still developing.

This wine will be enhanced by a food pairing such as shellfish, a Thai curry accented by ginger and lemon grass, a savoury tart tatin or a single wedge of salty pecorino. Drink now, but wait five to seven years for a truly evolved experience.
