Textured, complex, yet as refreshing as the cool Atlantic winds that blow across this Darling-based vineyard. Winemaker Anthony de Jager attributes this Sauvignon Blanc’s fresh minerality to the red oakleaf soils and maritime climate in which the vines are grown. But terroir isn’t the only talking point: this classic example of Sauvignon Blanc meets all expectations, being intensely aromatic with ruby grapefruit, granadilla and lime aromas on the nose combined with a mouth-watering zestiness that lingers on the finish. A perfect apéritif, but also delicious with seafood dishes or Fairview’s goat cheeses.
“The 2020 winter was the first good winter rain we have had in three years. The season was mild, a long summer without any heatwaves and a much longer ripening period than what we have normally. We harvested up to 3 weeks later than usual, making this year exceptionally tropical and expressive with a fresh acidity.”- Anthony de Jager
The grapes were machine harvested early in the morning, arriving at the cellar before sunrise. Whole berries were gently pressed, after which the juice was settled for 48 hours and then racked into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Conditions during fermentation is managed to preserve and accentuate the tropical “thiolic” profile inherent to the cultivar. The wine was left on its fine lees after fermentation, prior to blending, stabilization and bottling.
