Mostly from a single producer in Elgin, 6 different blocks of Sauvignon blanc are used to create a various number of batches of wine to select from for the blend.
Another tough vintage for South African wineries as severe drought conditions continue. Early ripening varietals more affected as they are harvested in the middle of summer, with later ones being hardier during this period. Whites and blanc de Noir have surprised with good freshness and the reds show great promise with lower alcohols.
Cool climate with more chalky soils to add texture and salinity to the Sauvignon blanc.
Cheese (especially goat cheese), green vegetables (asparagus, zucchini, fresh peas, artichokes), oysters, delicate fish like sole.
