Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2011
The wines magnus opus opens with snow peas and lemons before letting the big band action of guava, violets, spice and apple crystals blows you away. This is the sort of wine you sit back in a large arm chair and let the waves take you to a place in the cosmos. On the journey into outer space there will be a brilliant textural component that seduces your taste buds, with a waxy type of character, before a zippy acidity takes over leaving your mouth dripping with saliva.
