Tasting Notes:

Entices on the nose with lively summery aromas of green apple and guava followed by lingering notes of minerality. Elegant and refreshing on the palate, overflowing with tropical papaya, green melon, naartjie and a twist of lime. This wine shows linear acidity, with lovely length and flinty minerality that lingers to the finish.

Our Sauvignon Blanc vines are planted on the highest vineyards on the Estate, on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain range, facing False Bay. The early morning breezes cool the vines, which contributes to the superb natural acidity in the grapes. Decomposed granite soils contribute to the effortless minerality on the palate

Leaf fall occurred later than usual which allowed good reserves to build up in the vines. The similarly delayed onset of Winter allowed for good cold unit accumulation. Rainfall was the lowest to date. Days were warm and nights cool. Budding occurred later and flowering was uniform. A dry, warm season resulted in compact berries with some supplementary irrigation necessary. A cooler February allowed for even ripening. An abundant vintage of exceptional quality.

At our cellar every individual berry is meticulously hand selected on our sorting table, ensuring only the very best are used for making our fine wines. Attention to detail is our focus, with the ultimate care taken for each and every grape.

Fermentation takes place in modern stainless steel fermenters. When the time is right, the art of blending comes into play where we creatively blend each component into a masterpiece, to complete the process which began in our vineyards, watched over by Mother Nature.

Food pairing

Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with briny, sour cheeses such as Goat's milk cheese, yogurt and Crème fraîche. It is also well matched with white meats such as chicken, salmon, sea bass and crab.
