“It’s never been so intoxicating to taste and drink the wines of the Cape,” writes Master of Wine Tim Atkin on South Africa. “The combination of diverse terroirs, old vines and pure winemaking talent is hard to beat.”

We whole-heartedly agree. And all that winemaking talent and dedication to quality is on full display in this super-fresh white from 5-star producer Bon Courage.

The estate’s Cape Dutch homestead dates back to 1818, although grape growing only started here in 1921. Three generations later, the Bruwer family wins armfuls of awards every year. Recent vintages of The Gooseberry Bush have earned serious critical acclaim, and this 2022 release already received a double-gold medal from Gillbert & Gaillard judges. Crafted from a classic South African grape combination of crisp Colombard (90%) and citrus-charged Sauvignon Blanc (10%), it’s a born thirst quencher.

In the glass, look for a pale straw color with green glints. Uplifting aromas of gooseberry (of course), grapefruit and fresh-cut grass introduce a complex palate filled with tropical fruits (guava and pineapple), plus fig and lime notes. Zesty and appetizing, this is best served solo or alongside an avocado and prawn salad or grilled chicken.
