This Sauvignon Blanc provides a really refreshing point of view from the more traditional geographies, say the Loire, or New Zealand. It sings with tart kiwi fruit, with a rich aloe texture, and a shiitake mushroom sort of umami that really made it stand out for us. Sancerre-who?
Sourced from 3 cool climate regions: Elgin, Walker Bay (Hermanus) and Cape Agulhas.
Harvested and fermented separately in older (2nd/3rd & 4th Fill) 300L French oak barrels with indigenous yeast. The Elgin and Walker Bay components were left to naturally undergo malolactic fermentation, whereas the Cape Agulhas component was halted half way in order to retain freshness and the distinctive tang.
