"My biggest challenge is to prove a dozen times a day that South African wines are great!" says Amani winemaker Carmen Stevens. I can relate. With this wine, she has done just that. Stevens, a native South African, worked at Sonoma's famed Simi Winery before returning home. This lip-smacking wine showcases Stevens' careful study of her craft, with its zesty acidity and fresh aromatics. Amani means "place of peace," and there's no better wine to sip when you need a quiet moment to yourself.
This 2011 Amani is everything you want in a New World Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of fresh-cut grass, herbs, snap peas, Bosc pear and grapefruit carry through delicately to the palate. As it warms up in the glass, honeydew melon emerges. This wine is light and zesty, making your mouth water for more. Pair it will light hors d'oeuvres, salads and anything containing goat cheese.
