Smart Weigh Body Fat Digital Precision Scale with &hellip by Smart Weigh

The first impressions of this set of personal scales are that the platform feels reassuring large and solid. Having checked our existing scales they are approximately 10 inches square (26 cms), but the Smart Weigh scales are a little over a foot square (31cm).

Not really to my taste as my preference is for dry, I am probably not the person to be reviewing this wine! Better chilled, it is quite heavily loaded with sugar which rather overwhelmed the tasting experience for me. May work as a dessert wine but not really in the same league as some of the excellent and relatively modestly priced whites available. Probably best as a refreshing summer wine if your taste is for the sweeter German hocks or Liebfraumilch or similar. Sadly not for me though.

This is a good quality Sauvignon Blanc which again emphasises just how much South African winemakers have achieved in the last few years. They can certainly give the New Zealanders a run for their money with this variety which came as something of a revelation to me. The first impression is of peaches and the taste is intensely fruity from the word go. Reasonable length and a good accompaniment for dishes such as chicken or pork. For a wine of this quality the price tag represents good value.
