Driven by true expression and focus, this Sauvignon blanc exudes the characteristic cool climate that allows delicious aromatics and a fresh minerality with added texture. This ensures that every glass is a work of art showcasing a defined terroir expression.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes came from the beautiful Vaalvlei vineyard in Stanford, which is close to the ocean and has decomposed granite soil. The Semillon is from Robert Stanford vineyard.
The grapes for this wine were hand-picked, hand-sorted and whole-bunch pressed. Fermented in large French oak barrels and an ‘egg’ using wild yeast only. The wine also went through malolactic conversion.

Alan's Personal Tasting Notes
"Just amazing! One of these multi-layered wines that just keeps on giving. There’s a layer of fresh citric fruit alongside a different layer of riper fruit salad fruit - then a layer of deeper flavours probably due to some lees stirring or maybe a dollop of Semillon in the blend? Then comes a layer of creamy toast probably due to some oak maturation - and also a seamless layer of acidity running through it. Flavoursome, complex and well balanced. Drinks very well on its own - fresh enough for shellfish and seafood and creamy enough for a saucy chicken pasta dish - a real delight which shows winemaker Jeremy Borg as a genius in my palate."
