Morgenster Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, South AfricaFor over twenty years, I was a regular visitor to South Africa, and the wine that impressed me the most was Sauvignon Blanc. The quality was relatively high, and the price was dirt cheap. Unfortunately, the monopolies wanted to sell defective pinotage. Twenty-five years later, the sauvignon blanc is better than ever, and it's still dirt cheap, but very little of the good stuff makes it to BC. If you are a SB fan, it's worth searching for this Morgenster label. Look for a little New Zealand and a lot of Sancerre in this wine, a gooseberry, mineral, ripe apple affair that slides down easily. Elegant, dry, and crisp with a smooth, smoky, mineral finish, this overdelivers for the price. A summer evening of oysters and Morgenster would be a great start to discovering the South African sauvignon blanc special.Tasted: 13 April 2024Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
