Welcome back the warmer weather, lazy sun-filled days and picture perfect sunsets with a superb glass of white. The Jason’s Hill Chardonnay 2014 or Sauvignon Blanc 2015 are perfect summer tipples and easy on the pocket too!
Winemaker, Ivy du Toit, describes the unwooded Chardonnay as being fresh and vibrant with rich fragrances of fruit. Delivering a crisp and lingering aftertaste, enjoy on its own whilst basking in the sun, or serve with light seafood dishes, such as a Caesar salad or fruit-based salads. Even works well with mild curries disches such as Chicken Makhani. Available directly from the cellar at R40 per bottle.
What would summer be without a Sauvignon Blanc. The estate’s flagship white wine, the Sauvignon Blanc has superb varietal expressions, with delicate asparagus and grassy complexities. A wine with a refreshing crispness and a well-balanced finish, this is the perfect match with Asian inspired dishes which include lime, chilli and coriander ingredients. Will stand up well to the richness of oily or buttery dishes, as well as most salads, and is the perfect food wine for most seafood dishes (from raw to smoked). What more could you ask for from this superb value-for-money wine, which is available directly from the cellar at R45 per bottle.
Jason’s Hill Private Cellar is tucked away in the heart of the Boland at the foot of the Slanghoek Mountains. For more information visit www.jasonshill.co.za.
