Wine Spectator Notes : Fresh, with light chive, lemon zest and thyme notes. Quick finish. Drink now.

Robert Parker Notes : The 2015 Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc, blended with 13% Semillon, has quite a phenolic, resinous, waxy bouquet that is nicely focused. The palate is very well balanced with a grassy opening, Granny Smith apples and gooseberry notes leading to a lively, harmonious finish. This is very fine.

Tasting Notes : Harmonious and well balanced. Showing typical green herbaceous flavours as well as rich tropical notes. Pale straw in colour with a light green tinge, it has a lively bouquet of tropical fruit. The more coastal vineyards and a touch of Nouvelle grape impart herbaceous, Granny Smith apple and capsicum notes. On the palate the wine shows bright tropical fruit flavors of passion fruit and pineapple (the Paarl fruit) complemented by crisp, well integrated acidity. The wine has a rich, full structure (from the Semillon) with a rounded and creamy mouthfeel. This Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc, with an abundance of flavours from both sides of the Sauvignon spectrum, suits a wider audience, but will please any Sauvignon Blanc fan! Warrelwind refers to whirlwinds, which are a common sight in these vineyards throughout summer. These seasonal winds cool the grapes and turn the windmills dotting the landscape surrounding the Sauvignon Blanc vineyards.
