A glass of this classically styled dry white is a visit to the lighter side of savvy. It is one of the varieties available in the Majestic exclusive Acacia Road label from South Africa. I have been quite impressed by the quality on offer under this label. I think that there is a lot going for it for the price.
You will find all that you love about the grape in the passionfruit and white floral notes, kept interesting with a whiff of savoury spice and herbs, wrapped in a more elegantly bodied package. Fresh and crisp as it enters your mouth, it has a smooth and balanced finish that lingers.
It is perhaps not the choice for those who like to add ice cubes or soda water to your wine glass but it will be a wine that will have wider appeal. This is an easy drinking glass after work, whether you share it or not … that is up to you.
