Tasting Notes 


Private Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2020 

The Saxenburg Private Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2020 shows lovely flavours like granadilla, grapefruit, pears, with hints of capsicum and mineral flavours. Well-structured on the palate, with all the flavours prominent. The acidity is supporting the mouthfeel, with a long lingering aftertaste. This wine goes well with salads, lighter summer dishes and seafood, or enjoy on its own on a nice summer day.

 

Paired with the following –

 

Biltong: Thinly sliced beef biltong

The saltiness and delicate flavours of the beef biltong perfectly complement the Sauvignon. It makes the wine appear even fruitier and more complex. As with any great pairing, both the food and wine end up showing better. 

 

Chocolates: Tomes Vanilla Macaroon Truffles

Passion fruit is one of the most prominent flavours associated with Sauvignon Blanc, something this pairing beautifully highlights. The creaminess of the white chocolate softens the acidity of the wine, giving it greater mouthfeel and length.

 


Private Collection Syrah 2017

The Saxenburg Private Collection Syrah 2017 has a beautiful nose of black cherries, red berries and a hint of pepper and spice. The palate is seamless – the tannin dense, but finely grained. Hints of oak are beautifully integrated and only adds to the incredible complexity. A note of crushed granite and floral elements brings freshness to the palate that finishes with sweet spice. This is the first vintage labelled as Syrah and not Shiraz. Our new Syrah reflects the efforts in the vineyard and winery to strive for greater elegance and balance while staying true to the heritage of Saxenburg. 

 

Paired with the following –

 

Biltong: Thinly sliced beef biltong

The saltiness and delicate flavours of the beef biltong perfectly complement the Sauvignon. It makes the wine appear even fruitier and more complex. As with any great pairing, both the food and wine end up showing better. 

 

Chocolates: Tomes Vanilla Macaroon Truffles

Passion fruit is one of the most prominent flavours associated with Sauvignon Blanc, something this pairing beautifully highlights. The creaminess of the white chocolate softens the acidity of the wine, giving it greater mouthfeel and length.
