Steenberg ‘Rattlesnake’ Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Tasting Notes

Both terroir and treatment are immediately evident in the glass. White nectarine, grapefruit, blackcurrant and cape gooseberry marry on both the nose and palate. Acidity and spice form the backbone, dominating on the palate, while a creamy texture rounds out the overall mouthfeel. A lingering mineral finish completes the experience.
Although beautifully balanced from date of release, this wine is still developing. Drink now, but wait five to seven years for a truly evolved experience.

Barrel & concrete ferment 18 (86 pts) adds texture & vanilla/toffee flavour to flinty-green fruit. Lively acidity suggests keeping could be worthwhile.
