Silwervis

Swartland Chenin Blanc 2017

A funky and unconventional Chenin with a nose hinting at grapefruit, lemon rind and fennel. The palate is balanced with subtle flavours of ginger, honey, lemon curd and almond. An excellent food wine. — 12 days ago

Savage Wines

Sauvignon Blanc Sémillon 2019

Nose v reductive at this stage, even with air - not giving much away! One thing I will say, however, is that this wine’s aromas transport me to the coast of Spain; perhaps it’s a slight likeness to Albariño, not sure. But it makes me want a plate of grilled seafood!

On the contrary, the palate is a real extrovert, with an immediate hit of juicy fresh lime, Granny Smith apple, peach and bitter lemon. This wine is Sauvignon led (64%), and it shows, but there is a hint of orange peel and gentle tannin from the 16% Chenin in the blend, along with an underlying impression of wet gravel. Semillon makes up the other 20%, though you might not notice it.

Overall, this is a promising first look at Duncan Savage’s flagship white, a wine that will doubtless repay cellar time, and one I’ve really enjoyed despite my general aversion to Sauvignon Blanc. I look forward to trying this again in a year or two.
