Tasting Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "Pale straw colour with vibrant green hues. A fusion of jasmine and herbs with lemon and citrus notes. The palate is creamy yet finishes with a balanced citrus twist. Subtle oaking and fermentation with native yeast bring an appealing savouriness to this wine. These limited release wines demonstrate the distinctiveness of specific vineyard sites and represent our finest quality. Strongly influenced by the interaction of soil, topography and climate, this Sauvignon Blanc is lively, complex and reflective of its origin. The dominant source of fruit is a single vineyard site from the Jonkershoek Valley. The soil is mostly decomposed granite and quartz. Grapes were whole bunch pressed. Cold settling for up to 2 days, this vintage introduces 80% spontaneous or natural yeast fermentation in 500 litre French oak barrels. This wine spent 8 months in barrel."

    This is an absolutely killer Sauvignon Blanc from one of South Africa's most well-known wine regions. Juicy and expressive, with layers of complexity, this wine is sure to rival any high end Savvy you've had. Really one of the best versions of this grape I've seen coming out of South Africa in a while.
