  • In South Africa's Western Cape, the best Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are often found on the slopes of the majestic mountains. This is exactly where we found the grapes for this elegant Sauvignon Blanc. Bursting with fresh passion fruit, melon and pineapple aromas balanced by hints of nettle, green grass and flinty minerality. The refreshing acidity matches the fruit and mineral flavours perfectly and make this a wine that will stand up to a variety of dishes from pasta and poultry to early evening drinks with pleasant company. Enjoy slightly chilled.

Vinification Details

  • The grapes were harvested in the early morning to preserve all the flavours and aromas. After gentle destalking, the grapes are crushed and moved to stainless steel tanks where pre-fermentation maceration takes place for 3 days at 10 degrees Celsius. Standard maceration follows with 2 pump overs and the grapes left to ferment until dry.

History

  • The vines were planted between 2000 and 2004. Choice of cultivar clone and rootstock were well selected in the rich soils that the Western Cape offers. Vines are pruned to deliver well balanced crop and vineyard practices gets managed accordingly. The need for irrigation gets monitored on a weekly basis to ensure the vines never stress during ripening phase

Sauvignon Blanc As It Should Be.

5 stars

By 'eck this is truly exceptional, especially for the price! I usually spend rather more on a wine than this but a friend suggested I give it consideration. This wine is bright, tart & refreshing. thoroughly chilled, it went really well with baked chicken thighs & a creamy mixed salad. Just the thing for what has been the hottest day of the year here in Cumbria.

Very good, value for money white wine

This has been a reliably good bottle of white for a long time. Very drinkable and good value. A recent change in the shape of the bottle seems to have altered the wine for the worse! Go figure...
