Wine of the Day #59: Table Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2010

How much? R35;
Where? Ultra Liquors (0)21 797-4340;
Why? While anoraks debate the nobility of the Sauvignon Blanc grape and snobs like the Male & Groaner’s Cock Screwed columnist sounds off against it, wine lovers and lunchers will revel in the refreshing zing of this tropically fruited beauty priced the same as imported mineral water and far tastier.

t13 Wine of the Day #59: Table Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Hayden in a pensive, almost New Zealand, mood

The name says it all – this is a wine for the table with grilled fish an obvious match. New Zealand invented the style and SA has perfected it. Not a wine for pontificating and preaching, rather one for quaffing and enjoying.
