Two Oceans Wines 2015 Sauvignon Blanc - 84pts

Two Oceans Wines 2015 Sauvignon Blanc (W.O. Western Cape) South Africa

Availability: BCLDB Stores
Cost: $9.79 + taxes
Alcohol: 13%
Date Tasted: April 18th, 2016

Tasting Notes: All 'props' to Two Oceans to not succumbing to trends and producing a sugary, "approachable" Sauvignon Blanc for the seemingly endless legions of sweet wine drinkers who are, undoubtedly, eagerly anticipating the creation of Apothic Tart. Two Oceans have kept their under-$10 Blanc raw and biting with a refreshing profile of gooseberry, quince, kiwi, lime peel, grass and papaya.

Now, some better concentration and less kerosene notes would go a long way to elevating its lot in life, but for a tenner, you could do much worse. Drink now.
