Fetzer Sauvignon Blanc 2009

KWV Chenin Blanc

Date July 22, 2008 | Sean | Chenin Blanc & South Africa & White Wine

This wine gets it high score for two main reasons.  1. Value 2. It's not Chardonnay!  Whoa, hold your angry emails until you read the rest. As we've stated many times sometimes you want a white wine that doesn't carry the typical big bad Chardonnay character, overwhelming your meal at every sip.
This dark horse out of Sourth Africa is a very pleasant, easy drinking white on a hot summer day.  Excellent fruit and floral balance.  Clean and crisp on the palate and amiable to most foods.  So far this summer it has become the white house wine, and at under $10 a bottle, how can you go wrong?
Tip: Keep and eye out for value priced South African white wines - you'll be pleasantly surprised (most of the time)

Morgenhof Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2007

Date April 27, 2008 | Sean | Sauvignon Blanc & South Africa & White Wine

nosnob.com blind tasted this wine and admittedly, it gave us a little trouble. We poked around Chardonnay, Viognier but couldn't nail it at first. Once the wine had warmed up a few degrees it was instantly clear that it was Sauvignon Blanc. Just another reminder to take your whites out of the fridge a few minutes before drinking to get the full effect.
This was a really well balanced Sauvignon from South Africa. Would have liked to tasted a little bit more of an edge like some others, but overall, great smells and flavors.
Tip: pull it out of the fridge 15 minutes before serving
At a Glance

Smell grass, gooseberry, citrus
