the latest crop from South Africa's Seven Springs

As with their earlier releases, this is a Sauvignon Blanc that nods towards Europe as much as it does towards New Zealand in terms of its pitch and style. The nose is relatively subdued, offering citrus and a creamy suggestion of roundness and concentration. ... [Published Wine Pages - Jul 25 2014]

in our annual rose round-up, over 40 pink wines tasted and assessed

Cloudy Bay: tasting three of this icon's other wines

Cloudy Bay's famously oaky Sauvignon Blanc really isn't so oaky any more. Admittedly it is a few vintages since I tasted this wine, which I have always enjoyed, though the toasty French oak influence always seemed more obvious than on this 2011 release. ... [Published Wine Pages - Jul 02 2014]
