Tasting Notes

The grapes for the Estate Sauvignon have been sourced from three premium wine regions. Aromas of lemon, asparagus and a refreshing salty note from the Olifantsrivier grapes. A rich palate from the lees contact, with mouthfilling citrus and gooseberry fruits with lemon peel, grapefruit and underlying minerality with a tangy salty note on the finish. Crisp acidity to finish.

Reviews & Scores

Well-focused, with a lightly toasted shortbread edge to the citrus pulp, white peach and straw flavors. Features good zip for balance.

This elegant wine boasts rich aromas of honey and peaches, along with a distinctive salty-savory note, which is a proper expression of our vineyards and terroir. The palate is fresh and lively...
