Sourced from two Cape regions; the first, Elgin, where the rocky shale soils bring great complexity and weight. The second, Franschhoek, where the fine sandy soils bring the tropical notes.
Don’t let the nose of this sauvignon blanc put you off – on first sniff, it’s certainly an unabashed sauvignon blanc, with masses of nettly, blackcurrant leaf notes, finely chopped green pepper, green apple and white pepper.
Don’t expect Emerald to be all Kiwi sauvignon; tropical, gooseberry and elderflower . Expect it to open and broaden with the palate brimming with Canteloupe melon, super ripe mango and passion fruit. Crying out to be paired with a baked goats cheese drizzled with honey, or radicchio with an orangey dressing!
