I myself being a massive fan of the value New Zealand offerings such as Astrolabe, a quick scan of the label denoting bell pepper was all it took to sell me on this Sauv Blanc. Luckily, I was not disappointed.
This South African’s nose offered tropical fruit with a hint of nut and toast. The finish the same with perhaps more discernible pineapple than the start.
In between, a balanced acidity complimented the bell pepper on the palate, albeit not as close to the jalapeno-esque pepper as some, if that makes a difference to you. It didn’t to me. Fine value at $22.
