“ Brand: Rhino / Type: White Wine „
I really enjoy white wine,although it has to be Sauvignon blanc . Whist browsing in my local independent wine shop I came across a wine I had not seen before. I was attracted to it not only by the reasonable price (£6.50),but also by the small picture of a rhino in the corner of the label promising to donate 10% of all profits to the save the rhino charity. So not only could I enjoy a glass or two of wine but I would be helping an endangered species too!
The wine comes from the western cape area of South Africa where the climate is Mediterranean.The winemaker is Hennie Huskisson of Linton park wines. The rhino label also produces rose and red wine,although I am yet to try these. The wine is described as having *hints of tropical fruit such as nettle and gooseberry*.Although I enjoy wine and have tried many bottles in my time;I can rarely distinguish the different fruits! This wine goes well with salads,fish and white meat. However it is also great to drink on its own! It comes in a screw top bottle and has a label showing a green Rhino.The wine is best served well chilled.
I really enjoyed this wine finding it crisp and easy to drink. It is quite dry but has no acidic after taste. It contains 12.5 % alcohol so should be treated with respect! It is easy to drink and was great with my chicken risotto. I have not seen this wine in supermarkets ,but would definitely buy it again !
This fresh well-balanced white wine with hints of tropical fruit shows classic nettle and gooseberry characters found on the nose of Sauvignon Blanc. Modern winemaking techniques give this wine ripeness, depth and complexity on the palate. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. A perfect aperitif, enjoyed with salads, fish, seafood, white meat, dishes with creamy sauces.
