Wine Tasting Note: Vergelegen Sauvignon Blanc, 2004, Western Cape, South Africa.
Listed by Sainsbury's for £7.99.
This wine was selected to accompany a recipe from Nigel Slater's new book as detailed in the latest Observer Food Monthly; the dish is the Courgette and Lancashire cheese crumble. The food was rather a good match for a fine, mineral-boned Sauvignon such as this one. The green-grassiness complemented the courgettes in the dish; the crisp acidity cut through the cheese. Elderberry and green peppers add to the complexity. Alcohol 13%. More at the Vergelegen Website.
Scribblings Rating - 90/100

Happy to see comments on SA wine in international cookbooks, in most food and wine matching books the authors seem totally unaware of SA wine.

Actually Maud it wasn't recommended at all; it was just a wine I selected to accompany the dish. I don't think the book is actually printed yet.
