Reviews for 2011 Cape Point Sauvignon Blanc

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, May 2013
Alluring, with lightly toasted brioche and wet straw notes framing a core of muddled lemon, white peach and chamomile. The long, mineral- and gooseberry-filled finish echoes nicely. Drink now through 2015. – JM

A beautifully balanced and well-crafted Sauvignon Blanc, opening with attractive aromas of grapefruit pith, green fig and lime zest, all complemented with a soft saline accent. Lightweight, with medium acidity and a bright palate, flavors of green melon, citrus rind and a hint of dried grass linger into the medium-length finish.

Densely packed and ripe, with a touch of sweetness to the concentrated fruit salad and grapefruit flavors. Less fruity than the Stonehaven bottling but also more laid-back today and more serious, with excellent framing acidity. Finishes with a persistent note of grapefruit pith. This should evolve nicely in bottle for at least a few years.

The palate is well balanced with a slight grassiness on the entry. This is very well balanced with a lovely, intense nettle and gooseberry finish. Excellent. - Neal Martin
