South African Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine grape variety that is widely grown in South Africa. It is known for its crisp acidity, lively fruit flavors, and herbal and grassy notes.
South African Sauvignon Blanc is typically unoaked, allowing the natural characteristics of the grape to shine through. The wine is produced in a range of styles, from light and fresh to more full-bodied and complex, and is often enjoyed as a refreshing aperitif or paired with seafood, salads, or spicy dishes.
Some of the most well-known South African Sauvignon Blancs come from the Cape Winelands region, particularly from areas like Stellenbosch, Durbanville, and Walker Bay.
