Springfield Life from Stone, Sauvignon Blanc

As the weather gets hotter, so does the prospect of . Smoking hot – and on that note,Life From Stone Springfield ‘Life from Stone’ has a unique flavour profile often referred to as ‘gun smoke’ connoting the flinty minerality imparted onto the wine by the lime-stone hills of Robertson, which do so well to keep the race-horses in galloping condition, and gives this Sauvignon Blanc its bang. The colour is slightly green and the wine, like its explosive nose, shoots flavours of granadilla and red pepper onto the palate. In winter, Springfield’s ‘Whole Berry Cabernet’ is a wine I revisit with relish from year to year; and being a producer for all seasons, Life from Stone Sauvignon Blanc is just the same. This is wine for hot summer days and relaxed company.

    Hi Peter,
    Great to see you punting Pinotage. We’d love some recommendations from you. Apologies for not putting the vintage, I had tasted the 2005 Life From Stone, which I had been keeping. I’ve been travelling a bit this last week and haven’t found the 2006 in stores, but I’ve got my eye out…
