Green-ness is fine for your Christmas tree, but not for your Sauvignon Blanc. Pieter Walser’s Rabbitsfoot is a ripe and exuberant interpretation of the variety made with fruit from Stellenbosch. It’s produced from only five rows of vines, grapes that are “usually eaten by the babboons”. Well not this year, my simian friends. Quoth Robin Davis: “It reminds me of a bit of Semillon on the nose, but it’s quite plump on the palate, although nicely taut. It’s aromatic, slightly grassy. Softer and more texture on the palate than Semillon. A bit of quince on the aroma, and paw paw, almost mango on the palate, and even white peach.”
