The Wine in Detail
The Backsberg John Martin Reserve Sauvignon Blanc flows with a surprisingly yellow colour into the wine glass. Immediately, notes of gooseberries and lemon blossoms fill the air. In addition, there are slight grassy undertones that are typical for a Sauvignon Blanc. These aromas are also very present on the palate, where they are joined by nuances of limes, figs and pears. The elegant white wine spent some time on the yeast which gave it a soft mouthfeel without losing its fresh acidity.

Goes with …

The John Martin Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect partner for poultry and fish dishes with its complex and long finish. It also goes very well with various cheese varieties.

Grape Variety

The John Martin Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is constituted of mostly Sauvignon Blanc and to a small extent Sémillon. Sauvignon Blanc is primarily known for aromatic and tangy white wines. Often, light green tones appear in the colouring which is a special quality feature, unlike with other white varieties. Slightly grassy aromas accompany the fruit aromas and match the colour. This is why the grape variety Sauvignon Blanc is also known as the ‘green wine’ amongst connoisseurs. Sémillon rounds off the wine perfectly.
