It’s time once again for Wine of the Month Club! I have sampled some delicious wines over the past few months and now I’m back, ready to introduce you to my favourite wine for November 2017. Say hello to the Robertson Winery Lightly Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc 2016. This beautiful new style of wine is the perfect way to delight the senses on a hot summer’s day. Here’s why it’s my pick for Wine of the Month Club this November.

Robertson Winery introduced a new style of wine in 2014 with the launch of their Lightly Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, Now just in time for summer cheer, Robertson Winery has released the 2016 vintage of this invigorating Lightly Sparkling wine. Produced from top quality grapes, with sprightly fresh fruit flavours, and an added dazzle of tiny bubbles this wine offers a splash of sophistication with a dash of festivity.

This delicious lightly sparkling Sauvignon Blanc boasts real character with intense fruit flavours of grapefruit, melon and passionfruit, and a touch of sparkle. The tingling liveliness enchants the palate before gradually fading away. I love it because it’s the perfect middle ground between drinking bubbly and traditional non-sparkling wine and it really does add a touch of sophistication and glamour to an otherwise ordinary day.

Serve perfectly chilled for invigorating summer drink around the table, at a picnic, a braai, or sundowners beside the pool.

The Robertson Winery Lightly Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc is widely available nationally at major liquor retailers and grocers, retailing for approximately R55.
