Time: 18.30
Type: Food and Wine pairing

Renowned for the success of its aperitif-style La Motte Sauvignon Blanc sourced from various growing areas as well as the intriguing complexity of the cool climate Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc, La Motte Cellarmaster Edmund Terblanche enjoys tasting and talking about this varietal, comparing vintages, origins and styles. For the 2018 edition of the estate’s annual Sauvignon Blanc Experience, Edmund will have an intimate look at South African Sauvignon Blanc, comparing Wine of Origin: Coastal to Wine of Origin: Cape South Coast.

Coastal might suggest cool afternoon breezes and milder temperatures, but how is this different from the climate of the Cape South Coast? Edmund explains what is understood under wine of origin at the hand of various examples of South African Sauvignon Blanc, demonstrating the differences between these two prominent Sauvignon Blanc production areas.
