Tasting Notes
In keeping with the trend towards fruit driven wines this Sauvignon Blanc displays intense varietal character including gooseberry and fig flavours. The introduction of wine from the cooler Elgin area, has ensured greater freshness and vibrancy.
Ageing Potential
Although attractive now our 2010 Sauvignon Blanc can be kept for a further 2 to 3 years.

Food Suggestions
It can be enjoyed alone or as an accompaniment to good seafood.
In The Vineyard
Most of the fruit (78%) is grown on Villiera making the wines distinctive and unique. The balance (22%) was sourced in the upcoming cooler climate of Elgin, resulting in the wine’s origin switching to Western Cape. From the vineyard to the cellar, techniques are utilized that develop and retain the distinct aromas and flavours of the grape varieties used.
In The Cellar
The grapes were delivered to the cellar in the morning while still cool for crushing and destalking. A 6 hour skin contact period was allowed for maximum flavour extraction. After pressing the juice was settled before a controlled, cold fermentation.
