Springfield 'Life from Stone' Sauvignon Blanc 2016 92 pts Tim Atkin MW 2017

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

4 Stars Platter’s 2017 South African Wine Guide
14-20 year old vines on stony soils consistently delivers bright flinty & herbaceous flavours. 16 intense & long at a mere 12.6% alcohol. Super food wine.
92 pts Tim Atkin MW 2017
Located mostly on quartz soils in a very rocky part of the estate, this is tangy, grapefruity and very refreshing, with mineral and thiol notes and a crunchy finish. You can see why this is such a popular style, especially at this price.

Winemaker Notes

Life from Stone derives its name from the incredibly rocky soils in which it is grown. Every year the vineyard battles against nature in order to produce highly concentrated, powerful wines with a flinty, mineral character true to the quartz rock in which it is grown. Monumental human effort was required to plant the vines – implements destroyed, and, in the case of the older vineyards, dynamite deployed. A true expression of the site’s terroir, this wine will drink well now, or can be enjoyed in the next 2-3 years.
