RNW Sauvignon Blanc, Rikus Neethling, Western Cape
Bosh, Rikus strikes again.
Tastes like: Lemongrass. Apple Cider. Gooseberry. Herbaceous Aromas. Acidity.
Rikus Neethling is a 'Less is more’ kinda guy. This is at the forefront of his vinification and viticulture philosophy. What a result it heralds. Taking grapes from all over South Africa, this means he can muster up some of the finest wines.
What a wine his methods produce. It has that "New World" feel. Pale straw in colour, the aroma and flavours resonate. Followed by some subtle herbaceous tones. The wine continues to open and has a long clean finish.

I came across Chilled & Tannin online and thought I would sample their product with a purchase of six different bottles. Many online vintners promise a lot but deliver somewhat less... Not Chilled & Tannin, their wine descriptions are spot on and they have put together a varied and enjoyable wine list at very competitive prices. Don't take my word for it, try them yourself - you won't break the bank doing so and I'm sure you'll be as pleasantly surprised by the quality as I was. There can be no better way to top up your wine cellar now that we are going back into lock-down! Oh yes, and they are also efficient - my wine was with me on the 3rd working day after I submitted my order.... just don't eat the free gift that they enclosed, read the instructions carefully!
