Here we are solely responsible for the cultivation of the vines and selection of the fruit, mostly from our family property in Stellenbosch, just 5 kms from the cool Atlantic and in the sheltered lee of the majestic Helderberg mountain. This range includes older vineyards, showing more depth of character and concentration. Ideal food wines, with structure and elegance.

Tasting Note: This wine shows lovely complexity with mix of tangy grassy notes, fig leaf, peach and nectarine nuances. Brisk acidity with minerality on the palate which is typical of the long hang time in our cool region.
100% Sauvignon Blanc.
Very good while preparing a meal or out on the patio. Ideal with fish, chicken, pasta and friends.
Grapes sourced from Stellenbosch and Elim. We always look for a hint of tropical ripeness, as well as a crisp clean backbone to carry the wine. To achieve this, grapes are hand-picked from 3 vineyards, approximately 300 miles apart. This gives three unique flavour profiles; all made separately and then blended straight after being drained off the lees. Yield: Between 4 and 9 t/ha.
After crushing, pumped through mashcooler straight to press for draining. Freerun juice settled and fermented separately from pressings. Extended lees contact after fermentation for about 8 weeks to increase “creamy” character. Juice/wine handled reductively throughout process.
