Steenberg is synonymous with Sauvignon Blanc, the refreshing summer wine crafted from idyllic cool climate vineyards in the Constantia Wine Valley.
The vibrant Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc 2022 is zesty and fresh, ideal for sharing around the pool with friends, al fresco sundowners or light summer meals. It’s simply delicious with goat’s cheese, a caprese salad, grilled lemon and garlic prawns, or go all out with fresh oysters drizzled with a shallot vinaigrette.
The wine makes its first acquaintance with fresh Cape gooseberry and fig followed by a bouquet garni of nettle, herbs and lemon zest, Granny Smith apple and white peach. Bright acidity lifts the lively flavours of citrus blossom and quince supported by a distinctive mineral core, the hallmark of Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc.
Steenberg’s prowess as a producer of top tier Sauvignon Blanc is built on the farm’s unique terroir and dedicated focus on this cornerstone variety over the past 30 years.
“Our vines are rooted in lean soils which are excellent for Sauvignon Blanc as they naturally keep the yields low, concentrate the flavours and add a distinctive minerality to the wines. This incredible terroir and the unique micro climate of our cool, east facing slopes inspire us daily to create wines with a strong sense of place,” says Cellarmaster Elunda Basson.
Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc 2022 is available at leading stores, the Steenberg Tasting Room and online at http://www.steenbergfarm.com at a cellar door price of R149.00.
