Zonnebloem’s 2014 Limited Edition Sauvignon Blanc, lauded for its skillful combination of flinty and tropical characters to create a wine of great elegance, balance and complexity, has won a Veritas gold medal.

Grapes were sourced from two blocks on the same Darling property, with 70% of the blend derived from a vineyard yielding fruit with crisp, zesty, nettle flavours and the balance from a closely situated block delivering grapes with a profile of gooseberry, melon and figs.

“The result is richly layered and freshly invigorating,” says winemaker Elize Coetzee. “It literally wakes up the palate, so is immensely food-friendly.”

She recommends serving the wine with seafood prepared simply with olive oil and lemon juice, with foods prepared with tangy sauces and with creamy goat milk cheeses.

Available from the Vinotèque, it sells for just under R85. For details, go to www.vinoteque.co.za.
