Zonte's Footstep Excalibur Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Excalibur, is it so called due to the razor sharp acidity for which the variety can be known? or because, like King Arthur's sword, you couldn't pull it out of the rock (or off the shelf) if you wanted?

Personal proclivities aside, I've gotta write about the weed.....

All that said, this is a softer aromatic example, still carrying the passionfruit, blackcurrant leaf and citrus balm. The palate is a little drier, a light phenolic touch against moderate acidity.

Good length to boot. You'd happily go here. 90
