South Africa produces amazing sauvignon blancs, many with the stereotypical tartness but with an elegant fruitiness. This one from Robertson Winery, established 67 years ago, offers exceptional quality for the price. Soft and citrusy with ripe red apple and a crisp, steely, flinty atertaste. 3.5 stars out of 5. Sweetness=2 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $10
