Etty’s Wine Pick: Cape Point Stonehaven Sauvignon Blanc 2008

This world-class Sauvignon Blanc which hails from Cape Point, South Africa drinks like a top notch bottling from the Loire Valley. No wonder, since the winemaker, Duncan Savage, spent some time working with renowned Loire winemaker Didier Dagueneau at his estate in Pouilly-Fumé. Super elegant and complex, this boutique gem features varietal aromas of gooseberry and wet stone then moves into a creamy, mouth-filling palate brimming with vibrant white grapefruit flavors and chalky minerals. This is a knockout Sauvignon Blanc!
