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 granadilla and grapefruit 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 grapes were machine harvested very early in the morning, arriving at the cellar before sunrise. Whole berries were gently pressed, after which the juice settled for 48 hours and was then racked into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The wine was left on its fine lees after fermentation, prior to blending and bottling.
