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.
and tangerine scents.
Crisp and intense, with
grapefruit and bell pepper
