R 175.00

AWARDS  |  TASTING NOTES

The crisp, grassy De Grendel Koetshuis Sauvignon Blanc was so named because the grapes used to make this wine are grown in the vineyard that sprawls out right next to the old coach house (‘koetshuis’ in Afrikaans) where the wagons of days gone by were once kept.

These grapes are blended with grapes from Darling to create the very fresh wine, with capsicum, asparagus and gooseberry flavours that was...
