Steenberg Rattlesnake Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Aromatically, the Rattlesnake displays notes of nettles, candied ginger, lime blossom, Cape gooseberry and melon on the nose. On the palate, this wine is rich and unctuous, balanced by the well-integrated and lively acidity.
The 2016 Rattlesnake has a pale white-gold colour with a light green hue around the rim. This year’s Rattlesnake is made up of 100% Sauvignon Blanc cultivated on our cool-climate Steenberg Farm. Carefully selected vineyards will make their way into the Rattlesnake Sauvignon Blanc. We look for vineyards portraying a rounded mouth feel that will hold its own during barrel fermentation. The wine lingers on the palate considerably.
Personal food pairing: Enjoy with a Parma ham and melon salad on a hot summer’s day, also enjoyable with Pork Dumplings with Ginger, Chilli & Soy Sauce.
