Wine Recommendation:

Benguela Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2016

This white blend shows aromas of melon, floral blooms and lime with nuances of gunflint and green apple. The palate is well balanced by integrated oaking, displaying notes of citrus, minerality and roasted nuts. The palate is austere, yet vibrant and textured, with a lingering and refreshing finish.

  1. Very interesting way to present oysters, always have them with some fresh lemon juice.
