It’s time once again for wine of the month club! For the past month the WomenStuff team has tried loads of wines all in the name of research and now we are finally ready to introduce you to our favourite wine for the month of May! Say hello to the Nederburg’s The Young Airhawk 2012.
Nederburg’s The Young Airhawk 2012, Sauvignon blanc is part of the Nederburg Heritage Heroes Collection – an exquisite range of five wines, all with a rather unique story. Winemaker, Razvan Macici created the collection of individually named, limited-edition, gourmet wines to honour some of the major figures in South African winemaking who have been a source of inspiration to him. Our favourite from the collection is, of course The Young Airhawk.
This clear, light green wine with a beautiful golden hue offers layers of green fig, asparagus and made entirely of barrel fermented Sauvignon blanc grapes. Forget bubbly this wine pairs super well with oysters as well as crayfish, calamari, prawns and pasta dishes. We paired it with a dish of Marinated tuna with garlic croutons and horseradish but it would also pair beautifully with a creamy Pasta Alfredo
