The concentrated and highly anticipated 2017 vintage has produced a rich and flavoursome Sauvignon Blanc. Sourced from both Stellenbosch and Philadelphia, there is terrific balance of tropical fruit, cool climate elegance and a mineral structure. Blasts of gooseberries, guava, passionfruit and lime coat your palate in a dance-off between freshness and power. A dash of Semillon complements the palate further, offering a touch of spice and deep texture. A hint of herbs on the finish add further complexity to a charming yet momentous Sauvignon Blanc.
