Awards, Reviews and other Notes

4 Stars 2017 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Unoaked 16 has all racy lime & vibrant grapefruit of Reserve minus its breadth & depth of texture, though 3% semillon & 4 months on lees plump it up beautifully.
89 pts Wine Advocate Issue #230 April 2017
Blended with 3% Semillon from vines on the estate located on sandier soils compared to the rest of the farm, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc has a crisp, grass clipping and gooseberry scented bouquet. The palate is fresh and linear with a light marine influence, a touch of sea spray splashing over the Granny Smith and nettle notes on the finish. Enjoy this over the next 3-4 years.
90 pts Vinous May 2017
Bright, light yellow. Subtle yet pungent hints of lime zest, white pepper and anise. Densely packed, intensely flavored and penetrating, with a suggestion of bitter white grapefruit peel currently clashing with the wine's alcohol. Hints of fresh herbs and tarragon stay behind on the finish. Offers greater density, texture and length than the Stonehaven but not up to the normal high standards of this bottling.



Winemaker Notes

The wine shows a complex array of tropical fruit, grapefruit and limes all held together by an incredible mineral backbone. The palate is focused and racy, made in a style to be a wonderful food companion. This Sauvignon Blanc is drinking beautifully at present, but try to exercise patience as it will only improve over the next 2-5 years. Best enjoyed with fresh line fish, oysters, sushi, crayfish and summer dishes in general.Blend: 97% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Semillon.
