Glen Carlou winemaker, Johnnie Calitz, describes the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc as “a vibrant styled Sauvignon Blanc, expressing layered notes of passion fruit, guava and pear. On the palate the wine confirms an array of tropical fruit, ripe fig and gooseberry aromas underscored by a crisp minerality, leading to a gentle finish. There is a continued presence of gooseberry, capsicum and granadilla throughout, leaving the palate appealing for more.”
