While the common saying is you shouldn't wear white after Labor Day...The Wine Buyer finds nothing wrong with drinking white after the unofficial end of summer.

It's true that the days are getting shorter, the temperatures slowly decline but the early fall is a perfect time for some outstanding Sauvignon Blanc. One of our personal favorites is the Fat Barrel project, founded by Bob Lynde in 1994 after a trip to South Africa opened his eyes to a 350 year old winemaking culture. He fell in love with the land and is one of the most significant biodynamic plant kingdoms in the world. Their 2012 Sauvignon Blanc hits the right notes of fresh citrus flavors and bright acidity, followed by a clean finish. From oysters to chevre to salads, this white is a versatile pairing with many foods and can be enjoyed nicely chilled on a beautiful fall day.

Rating
"Sharp and vibrant with flavors of lime, grapefruitand gooseberry, nice minerality and a very refreshing finish. While most Sauvignon Blanc coming out of South Africa mirrors the flavor profile of New Zealand, the Fat Barrel is more reminiscent of wine from the Loire Valley in France." The Wine Buyer, 90 Points

Wine maker notes
Not only are the wines stellar, but the brand generates awareness about the bounty and beauty of Africa, while acknowledging the humanitarian challenges and raising funds to combat those challenges. 10% of Bobís sales benefits organizations working to help those with less in Africa, as he believes that socially conscious initiatives in for-profit companies foster positive change. The actual vineyards are located in Paarl, which is at the heart of the South African wine country. Located 45 minutes from Cape Town, this charming region is considered the gateway to Cape Wine Culture, much like Napa is to California.
