The Tasting Centre


“Our Sauvignon Blanc is a consistent award-winner, but this – the first FNB Sauvignon Blanc SA Top 10 for Bonnievale – is especially gratifying,” says Bonnievale Wines CEO John Barnardt about the winning wine – the Bonnievale River Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2022. The winemaker responsible for its production, Edwin Mathambo, collected the award.


A winner

In tasting Bonnievale’s The River Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2022, the judges were glowing in their review. “Fresh and crisp like a sunny winter’s morning, this wine shows a hint of flintiness behind a splendid array of tropical fruit. The character is sustained on the palate, balanced by a subtle herbaceous note, and extends to a long satisfying finish. This medium-bodied wine should ideally be slightly chilled when served.” I couldn’t agree more–except do not be shy with chilling.

The River Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2022 is available at leading restaurants and retailers around the country. An award winning wine at R65!!??


It can also be purchased with door-to-door delivery via Bonnievale Wines’ online shop, accessible here:

The winery itself is situated on the outskirts of the town from which it derived its name and is situated 125km due east of Cape Town. The region has a long history of wine growing that is rooted in soils, landscapes and climate ideally suited to producing award winning wines.
