We take natural approach in making this wine, aspiring to harmonise the many features within the Sauvignon Blanc grape grown in the Hemel-en-Aarde area. Soil-type combinations from these various vineyards produce a spectrum of flavour. Vivid, mineral and bright flavours evolve in the wines grown from the white quartz and sandstone soils higher up the vineyard slopes. These fine flavours were well complimented with Sauvignon originating from clay-based soils further down. Clay in contrast produces wines that may initially seem quite indistinct on the nose, slowly producing aromatics of tropical fruits, and it is the luxurious texture in the mouth that is its greatest asset. A component of oaked Semillon in the blend broadens this texture, combining a creamy sensation with the dryness and length of natural acidity.
Fine, crystalline character with traces of flint. Distinct perfumed wafts of sweet lime blossom and earthy fynbos broaden into generous apricot and a waxy underlayer. Generous texture with weight and persistence is counter balanced with bracing acidity and lemon drops lingering in the finish.
