The Vinologist’s journey to discover single-origin Sauvignon Blanc begins in the Cape Town region. Sauvignon Blanc is distinctive with its herbaceous aromatics and zesty acidity. The Vinologist finds expressive Sauvignon Blanc sites along the coast where the vines are exposed to the cooling influence of the Atlantic Ocean. Along with intense sunlight, the result is grapes with vibrant flavours. In the cellar, this wine is made with minimal interference to retain the fresh fruit aromas and natural acidity. This Cape Town origin Sauvignon Blanc exemplifies the maritime region in which these vineyards abound.
The nose is lively and zesty with its abundance of lime, gooseberry and greengage aromas. The palate is exceptionally round and smooth with flavours of ripe pear, melon, white peach and passion fruit following through. The wine is balanced with vibrant, yet integrated acidity. Apple blossom and hints of lemongrass linger on a fresh, clean, chalky finish.
