Steenberg Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Steenberg Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc 2013

This elegant Sauvignon Blanc shows aromas of orange blossom, elder flower, tangerine and lime. On the palate, the flavours follow up on the nose with notes of tangerine, lime and hints of gun flint. The wine has a beautiful creamy texture and full mouth feel, a great acidity and lingering aftertaste.
