Light straw in colour. Lots of gooseberry on the nose, together with lemon and tropical notes. Very polished and silky on the palate. Higher acidity than in other years, but well balanced by the almost medium bodied weight. The finish is juicy, light and lingering with a fresh finish.

Cultivar: 92% Sauvignon Blanc 8% Semillon

Alcohol 12.5% vol 

Residual sugar 1.9 g/l 

Total acid 6.6 g/l 

pH 3.47

This wine was made from grapes originating from vineyards in several areas of the Cape Winelands — Franschhoek (25%), Stellenbosch (50%) and the Cape South Coast (25%). Each vineyard grows in its own macro climate and different clones are represented. All the vineyards are trellised and managed to maintain a perfect balance between leaf coverage and yield. Thanks to the different terroirs, each region produces its own distinctive grapes, so grapes from each area make a unique contribution to the character of this wine.

After fermentation, the wine was left on the lees for three months to enhance complexity. For further complexity, the wine was blended with 8% Semillon.

Food Pairing

Seafood pasta and spicy foods (such as Chinese and Thai dishes), salty eats (such as pre-dinner canapés) and goat’s cheese.
