The Huguenot Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Franschhoek is the culinary capital of South Africa – perhaps because of the influence of the French Huguenots who settled there in the 17th century. This white is from a top cellar in the region, and was created to honour the contribution of these immigrants to the country’s wine industry.Young winemaker Richard Duckitt began his career in Stellenbosch, quickly showing a flair for his craft at the Muratie Wine Estate and going on to gain valuable experience at the world renowned Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars in the Napa Valley. He crafted this fine Sauvignon Blanc using a special yeast in slow fermentation, which helped bring out its delicate herby aromas. We recommend partnering with salt crusted cod and olive tapenade, or with shellfish.
