Sauvignon Blanc, with a small percentage of Sémillon, defines the distinctive taste this white Bordeaux-style blend. Creative Block 2 2014 won the Diners Club Winemaker of the Year Award, with Jacques Erasmus as winemaker.
Tropical notes of gooseberry, lime and white peach. Subtle hints of fynbos and a touch of white asparagus deliver depth. The palate is young and leads to a long and structured mineral finish. Pale straw in colour with hints of lime on the edge.

Four different vineyards planted on an altitude between 204 and 295 metres above sea level. All the vineyards are farmed dryland and have a naturally low yield. The ocean breeze moderates the heat, giving the berries a longer hanging time on the vine. These conditions create concentrated grapes with intense flavours.

Grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning in 10kg lug boxes and pre-cooled before hand-sorting, destemming and crushing. Skin contact was limited to six hours and the free-run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation with a selected yeast strain. The fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures between 12° and 14°C. A small portion of the Sémillon fermented in French oak barrels to add complexity to the wine. The wine matured for six months on the lees before bottling.

Food Pairing

Butter-roasted free-range chicken with seasoned goat cheese under the skin, or battered SASSI-friendly fish nuggets with anchovy mayonnaise.
