ageing : The Bush Vine Sauvignon Blanc also has potential to improve with maturation for up to 3 years.

in the vineyard : Villiera, a family run winery, is situated in the Stellenbosch region, where the prevailing Mediterranean climate favours, the growing of vines. We are a pioneering quality wine company committed to preserving the environment and we have been rewarded with membership to the Biodiversity of Wine Initiative.

Our aim is to reflect the specific character of the "terroir", as well as the unique characteristics of each vintage in our wines. We also commit ourselves to ongoing education and upliftment of our staff and their families.

The highly rated Villiera Bush Vine Sauvignon Blanc is a single vineyard wine made exclusively from older, low yielding un-trellised vines. This form of training results in a different style of Sauvignon Blanc. The denser canopy provides more shade on the bunches resulting in a more herbaceous style and the limited yield ensures greater intensity.
