South Africa has become a hot spot for fantastic Sauvignon Blanc. This chalky, grapefruit-inflected bottling shows why.
What You Need To Know
Sauvignon Blanc thrives in chilly, coastal vineyards, especially those of Bordeaux and the Loire Valley, where it yields minerally whites, and in newer wine regions like New Zealand and California, where the wines are fruitier. South Africa is carving out a spot for its Sauvignon Blanc that lies midway between these styles, with wines that offer both citrus flavors and a stony freshness. This bottling from Diemersdal is a terrific example. It’s made by the Louw family, who’ve been farming Diemersdal Estate for six generations. Located 20 minutes outside Cape Town, the estate’s vineyards benefit from the Cape’s temperate coastal climate. Their Sauvignon Blanc comes from unirrigated vines, whose small, concentrated grapes give the wine its stony intensity.
