Though Chenin Blanc–or Steen in local parlance–gets all the glamour, Sauvignon Blanc has really been shining lately in South Africa. This $18.99 effort, from the producers of the wildly delicious “Mint” Cabernet Sauvignon, is all springtime aromas and well-structured backbone. In other words, perfect right now.
