More Information

In the cellar

The wine was barrel fermented and aged on the lees for 9 months to give mid-palate weight, complexity . The barrels were second and third fill 500L. French oaked barrels.

In the vineyard

South facing and elevated 340 meters above sea level, these 20 year old vines look out over False Bay and are planted on the coolest site on our farm. The soil is mainly decomposed granite with clay subsoil helping to buffer the vines during stress. The grapes from this site derive the full benefit from the cool sea breeze during the slow ripening stages. Pungency, aroma and full concentration are the hallmark of this fine Sauvignon Blanc. There is no shortage of these varietal characteristics on these lofty southern slopes.

Ageing

Most certainly delicious now but matures beautifully for up to 3-5 years.

Cultivar

87% Sauvignon Blanc, 13% Semillon

Food Pairing

Perfect with seared tuna, salmon and oysters or try steamed asparagus with hollandaise sauce. A beautiful food wine that will stand up to complex flavours.
