La Motte La Motte Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc
Dry Sauvignon Blanc (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower)


Vineyards in the cool, emerging wine-producing areas close to the southern tip of Africa are combined to produce a wine of Origin Cape South Coast. The wine is thiol-driven, with especially citrus flavours, and green pepper and Cape gooseberry flavours in the background. The palate is very elegant, with a mineral finish.

With its delightful mineral finish, the 2022 Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc harmonises beautifully with seafood as well as the spicy notes of Chinese and Thai dishes. An elegant choice as an aperitif, this Sauvignon Blanc also works well with the freshness of salads and the acidity of tomatoes, especially semi-dried tomatoes.
