Celebrate summer with Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc

Steenberg is synonymous with Sauvignon Blanc, the refreshing summer wine crafted from idyllic cool climate vineyards in the Constantia Wine Valley.

The vibrant Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc 2022 is zesty and fresh, ideal for sharing around the pool with friends, al fresco sundowners or light summer meals. It’s simply delicious with goat’s cheese, a caprese salad, grilled lemon and garlic prawns, or go all out with fresh oysters drizzled with a shallot vinaigrette.

The wine makes its first acquaintance with fresh Cape gooseberry and fig followed by a bouquet garni of nettle, herbs and lemon zest, Granny Smith apple and white peach. Bright acidity lifts the lively flavours of citrus blossom and quince supported by a distinctive mineral core, the hallmark of Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc.
