Vinification Details

  • The grapes were harvested at 24 balling sugar. Pre-fermentation maceration 3days @ 10°C. Fermentation in stainless steal tanks for 6-8 days with selected yeast strain. Standard (2× pumpovers) maceration at <30°C until dry and the addition of American Oak during fermentation. Fining and filtration before bottled. Wines were racked after fermentation and inoculated with Malo-Lactic bacteria with bentonite finning prior to cold stabilization

History

  • The Stellenbosch winelands are considered to be the capital of the South African wine industry. Simon van der Stel arrived at the Cape as commander in 1679 and soon after was appointed its first governor. Later that year he undertook his first tour of inspection, which brought him to ‘the most charming valley he had ever seen' - the Stellenbosch winelands. He ordered the planting of the oaks, which is why it is sometimes referred to as Eikestad, or ‘town of oaks'

Regional Information

  • Stellenbosch is a hilly region of the Cape Winelands sheltered in a valley at an average elevation of 136m. The soil in this region range from dark alluvium to clay and combined with a well-drained hilly terrain and a Mediterranean climate, it offers excellent conditions for the grapes.

Very disappointing

Review from tesco.com

Not a good South African product - a rather medicinal after taste. I would not buy again, in fact I will ask to return the 5 we have not opened.

A great find

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

We have often dabbled with South African Sauvignon Blanc without success This one really changed our view completely . It was very very good and will become a staple if the price stays right

A sensibly priced and refreshing white

4 stars

Review from tesco.com

Unexpected character in a wine so young. The roundness like that of a Chenin balances but does not overpower the sharpness of the Sauvignon. I have never been a real fan of South African wines.....until now.. A fair price gives more flavour and enjoyment for your pound in this surprising find.

Review from tesco.com

An excellent Sauv Blanc. A great find and a superb white for sunny summer evenings. Actually, great any time of day. Smooth and delightful on the palate - dry-ish with little acidity. I have just noticed it is not currently in stock.

A good sauvignon blsnc with some sweet notes

4 stars

Review from tesco.com

A smooth tasting wine with strong gooseberry and kiwi fruit flavours. I would say more a 2 in degree of dryness as there are hints of sweetness coming through but a nice South African example.

excellent south african sauvignon blanc
