Platter * * * ½ – Zippy, mineral, with lovely crushed sage top note, 2017 characterful cool-climate wine that lingers. Blocks picked at different ripeness levels for varying fruit/acid profiles.
The 2017 Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc delights with notes of fig leaf, lime blossom, nettle and white grapefruit while maintaining its core minerality from the Steenberg terroir. This cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc has a striking and bright acidity which keeps it vibrant and fresh on the palate and pairs wonderfully with food. All the elements of this wine will enable it to bottle age well over the next 2- 5 years.
