Fall in love with our white blend! Enjoy with your friends while sharing a spectacular sunset.
This fine Sauvignon Blanc originates from three unique premium vineyards scattered across the fairest Cape – one in Stellenbosch at 500m above sea-level on an iconic “First Growth” Stellenbosch estate, the second from ultra-cool climate vines in Agulhas on sandstone soils at the tip of Africa & the final component originates from a small Elgin vineyard rooted in Bokkeveld shale.
All fruit is hand-harvested, gently pressed followed by a lees rich long cold fermentation in a stainless steel tank. A Sauvignon-specific yeast strain was used to initiate fermentation. After about 3 weeks the wine was racked off its gross lees followed by seven months on the fine lees to build complexity and flesh out the wine. The final blend was then prepared for careful bottling to provide you with this fruit-forward, textured but easy-going Sauvignon Blanc.

Slight pale straw color center, showing off a bright hue around the rim of the glass.
A beautifully fresh, tropical fruit-driven wine that opens up in the glass with layers of white spice, peach, lime, lemon, fynbos with zesty citrus, and crushed oyster shell finish.
For optimum enjoyment, we recommend that you chill the wine well before enjoyment. The Sauvignon Blanc blend is an excellent wine for warm South African summer days, early evening sundowners, and all-around great wine to impress your friends around the braai.
The light nature of the wine makes it easy to pair with all kinds of food: here are some of our favourite tried combinations, an ideal match for fresh seafood such as snoek on the braai with roasted sweet potatoes, sushi, or a simple roast chicken and a zesty garden salad.
