Cederberg Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Cederberg Sauvignon Blanc 2012

An elegant wine that is full of life. On the nose you will find capsicum, gooseberries, white asparagus and a hint of lime zest. A crisp flinty finish with a lingering aftertaste, leaving your palate refreshed.

The ideal companion to a traditional chicken pie, but try it with shellfish or pork to bring the best out of your dish.
