Crisp and dry white wine, single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc sourced from old vines planted in 1997. Complexity is brought by the site elevation of 200m above sea level, granite soils and southwestern slopes, which enable the wine to capture the essence of the Upper-Hemel-and-Aarde-Valley in Walker Bay. Pure and fresh with aromas and tastes of gooseberries, capsicum and hints of tropical fruits. Refreshing mineral and lingering finish.
Serve with raw or lightly cooked shellfish, eg oysters and prawns, fresh crab or grilled fish such as sea bass. Pair with gazpacho or young goats cheeses. Fine match with sushi and sashimi, seafood-based steamed and fried dim sum and smoked salmon. Think asparagus or fresh aperitif.
