Aaron:  The Spier Sauvignon Blanc was noticeably creamy in my opinion.  Tropical fruits of mango overpowered a bright, sweet fruit smell.  Strawberries and pineapple rounded out the flavor and though a little tart this wasn’t bad; pair it with a white fish.  89 points

Teri: This Sauvignon Blanc carries the traditional crisp characteristics of this varietal. I smelled grapefruit and citrus with light flavors of lemon, herbs, and a slight hint of peach in the taste. The flavors evolve slowly in your mouth then dissipate slowly. South African wines are slowly earning their way into the American wine market and this one is a worthy competitor. 87 points
