4 /5

- The 2017 Schaapenberg Sauvignon Blanc is extremely aromatic with ripe passion fruit and ripe guava, blackcurrant leaf, a touch of lemongrass and good minerality.
- The aftertaste is long and clean. Serve with fresh oysters, sushi and lightly spicy Cape Malay cuisine.

4 /5

Ein enorm komplexer Wein mit einem sehr langen Nachgeschmack.  Im Glas ein intensives Gelb.  In der Nase zeigen sich intensive Aormen wie grüne Feigen, Stachelbeeren, Guave und etwas grüne Paprika.

4/5

- Pale, bright, green-tinged yellow.
- Pure, vibrant aromas of lime blossom, gooseberry, dusty herbs, and white pepper. Dense, tactile and bone-dry with brisk flavours of lime, crushed stone and saline minerality.

4/5

On the nose daffodil is especially noted on this Vergelegen Sauvignon Blanc Reserve. Good flavour and long aftertaste.
I liked its character.
