Vinification Details

  • The grapes were harvested at 22-23 balling sugar with about 3-6 hours of skin contact. After settling, the wine was fermented at 16 degree Celsius in Stainless steel tanks. Wines was racked from fermentation lees and treated with bentonite before cold stabilization. All actions prior to filling was done with utmost care to avoid any form of oxidation.

History

  • Settlers started expanding the Cape region as farmland started to become scarce which led to the establishment of the towns of Robertson and Worcester. In the mid-19th century, the German settlers began planting orchards and vineyards and today, almost 40 percent of the vineyards in South Africa can be found in the Breede River Valley wine region

Regional Information

  • The Breede River Valley region offers a wide range of microclimates and terrains for grape cultivation. From the higher altitude mountain slopes with its rocky and stony soil to the valley floor running along the Breede river with mainly alluvial soil. A Mediterranean climate dominates this region, with temperatures colder in the winter and hotter in the summer than in the more coastal regions of the Western Cape.

Love this wine

Very disappointing

2 stars

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

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

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.

Best Wine

4 stars

This wine was the winner from our wine tasting day for our wedding guests 13 out of 15 selected it.

Liked this Wine a lot

4 stars

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

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
