Savage White 2020


One of the wines I always wanted to try before I die, was Domaine de Chevalier blanc. I was lucky enough to tick that box =, with a bottle of 2003, some years ago. What struck me was it’s lavishness, attention grabbing aromatics and palate coating richness. Indeed, I had not tried a wine like it. I loved it. Duncan Savage’s 2020 white blend took me back to that room, that wine, that moment. Rich and full bodied, you can’t escape the richness. So different in style to his lacy reds. Palate coating, all citrus, and and stone fruits, flecks of spice and luxuriously textured. Terrific power and length. Bargain. Waters Wine Co

It’s been in the pipeline for a long time and now with the 2020 Savage white blend, Duncan Savage has returned to his roots to create a traditional blend of Sauvignon Blanc (76%) and Semillon (24%) with all minority portions of either Chenin Blanc or Clairette Blanche now removed. Sourced from trellised and bush vine vineyards across the Western Cape, the grapes were whole bunch pressed before undergoing spontaneous wild fermentation. With the high Sauvignon Blanc component, the aromatics show a pronounced spicy, herby, savoury tinged array of waxy green apples, white citrus, clementine, honied chamomile and root fennel with subtle hints of dried fynbos and lanolin. The palate is masterfully rich and broad, coating all corners of the palate with intense, crystalline notes of spicy yellow grapefruit, freshly squeezed tangerines and white peach cordial notes. The acids are intense but wonderfully tangy adding to a real sense of textural harmony and mineral complexity. A very complete wine that races out the blocks and will undoubtedly give plenty of drinking pleasure immediately on release. Drink now and over the next 4 to 6+ years. 94/100 Points – Greg Sherwood MW, Wine Safari
