Indaba Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Not Vintage Specific
Item Number: 12867

“Enticing citrus and tropical fruit aromas lead to fresh, zesty flavors of pineapple, lemon-lime, mango and green fig, supported by a spine of racy acidity. Herbal undertones shine through on the mineral-tinged finish.
2017 was an exceptional vintage. The growing season was characterized by extremely dry conditions, with ideal warm days and cool nights and none of the typical summer heatwaves. The drought conditions meant that there was no rot or disease pressure and resulted in small berries and reduced yields. Grapes retained excellent natural acidity and the vintage produced wines of great freshness, concentration and flavor intensity.”-WE
Wine Enthusiast 89 Top 100 Best Buys of 2018
“This crisp, clean white offers upfront scents of freshly dried grass, orange peel, lemon custard and fresh mint. The palate shows great balance between the flavors of ripe apple flesh, strawberry hull and bright, citrusy acidity, while the herbal inflections return to accent the medium-length finish.”-WE
“Every time you purchase Indaba wines, a portion is contributed to the Indaba Education Fund which provides early childhood teacher training, learning materials, and educational infrastructure to young, at-risk children living in the South African Winelands.
The Indaba brand was first launched in the US in 1996, shortly after South Africa transitioned to a democratic republic. "Indaba" is the Zulu word for "a meeting of the minds," or a traditional gathering of tribal leaders for sharing ideas. The brand was created as a celebration of the democratization process in South Africa, and from its inception the wines have conveyed the spirit of South Africa to American consumers.
The Indaba range is carefully selected from emerging regions of the Cape winelands such as Robertson, Wellington, and the Breede River Valley. Production is overseen by Bruwer Raats, celebrated winemaker of Raats Family Wines and long-term consultant for Indaba. All are bottled under user-friendly screwcap closures with environmentally friendly packaging. In addition to garnering regular "Best Buy" nods from Wine Enthusiast, Indaba has earned extensive praise in Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, which described the wines as "truly mind-boggling values" for the past two consecutive vintages.”-Winery Notes

Great stuff - Easy to drink, moderate fruit and crisp bright flavors. Great summer pounder, at a steal of a price.
