This Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the highest vineyard in Elgin on a mountain plateau 500m above sea level only 18km away from the cool Atlantic Ocean. The vineyard, located on well-drained Bokkeveld shale soils, is one of the latest ripening sites in the Cape. Grapes were harvested by hand at an average 21.9°B, with bunch selection done in the vineyard and cool transportation in small bins to preserve the integrity of the fruit.

91 | Lemony aroma. The palate is flavoursome with brown lime accents. Weighty and unctuous.

88 | Matty, fusty, not 100% fresh, palate better but a bit broad, lacking focus.

91 | Appealing manuka honey and ripe stone-fruit aromas. Subtle with a silky, almost yoghurt, cream cheese note. Buttoned down and lean. Seems a little angular.

88 | lean, mineral, spicy and clean citrus tones, med bod, soft layers acid-driven and mineral texture, decent.
