Neal Martin is one of the most respected, international wine critics. Previously at Wine Advocate, Neal is now part of the team at Vinous and rated our 2016 Sauvignon blanc with 91 points in his 2019 South Africa Report
“The Elgin Ridge 2016 “282” Sauvignon Blanc, so named due to the apparent ideal elevation to create cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc in the Eglin Valley, actually goes a long way towards proving that point. It has a wonderful nose of freshly sliced pear, melon, gooseberry and subtle tropical aromas. Those are replicated on the palate, which is fresh, well balanced and offers enticing gooseberry, nectarine, satsuma and mandarin notes. This is a top-notch Elgin Sauvignon that is drinking beautifully now but should give four or five years of drinking pleasure.
Drinking window: 2019 – 2025, Tasting date: October 2019
