Hearty Sauvignon Blanc, with guava, pear and citrus. Long finish, mineral undertones and spices. This wine has the potential for bottle aging for a few years.
Seafood, fish, fresh (summer) salads, vegetarian dishes, goat cheese. Lovely with (white) asparagus.

In Hermanus, in the beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde Valley he found the ideal location to build one of the most famous wine estates in South Africa in partnership with Paul Bouchard. Talented Chris Albrecht has been appointed as winemaker in the meantime.
