Now this is a wine I have struggled with in the past. I have found it to be excessively dominated by those green methoxypyrazine characters, to the point of unbalance, while everyone else has raved about it. But I’m an open-minded sort of guy, and trying this 2014 – well, I actually liked it. It’s from rocky, calcareous soils in the underrated Roberston region of South Africa.
Springfield Life From Stone Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Robertson, South Africa
Assertive, aromatic nose is pure, fresh and grassy. The palate has powerful, vivid green pepper notes but also some pure, rounded citrus and pear fruit, with some elderflower prettiness. A distinctive, powerful style of wine, that shows intensity and concentration. I like this more than previous vintages. 90/100 (UK agent: Bibendum Wine)
