More about this wine from Western Cape, South Africa
While South Africans have been making wine since the 1600s, you would've been hard put to find one in the US during the years of Apartheid. Harken back to your Social Studies classes in high school and you'll (hopefully) remember the Europeans had a thirst for conquest - and they brought wine with them!

In this bottle, we have an old world grape, Sauvignon Blanc, making its own New World path. Wines hailing from the Old World are sometimes a bit more subtle in flavor, but this version, in true New World style, showed up ready for the party. You'll notice the juice is so fresh that it has a slight hue of pale green and the taste is decidedly refreshing and tart with aromas of ripe pear and pineapple.
How to drink it

Eating takeout on the floor during a power outage

Eating...

It can be hard to pair a wine that is already so well-balanced (ha!), but nutty pecans are up for the challenge.

Try it with our Maple Pecan Popcorn recipe.
