The wine is full and dry with well-balanced acid. It has tropical fruit, flintiness and hints of asparagus and figs on the nose that all follow through to the palate.

in the vineyard : Devon Valley, Stellenbosch. Our single Sauvignon Blanc vineyard lies adjacent to the farm dam on the cool valley floor, which is often overlaid with a blanket of mist in the spring and summer mornings, resulting in ripening temperatures being up to 5°C lower than vineyards on higher ground. This allows an extended ripening period resulting in luscious and healthy grapes.

Climate
Mediterranean - summers are warm and dry, although sea breezes from the nearby False Bay cool the vineyards in the afternoons and evenings. The winters are wet and cold with a high average rainfall.

about the harvest: The grapes were hand harvested at optimal ripeness.
