This Sauvignon Blanc white wine from the Western Cape of South Africa is a pale lemon colour with a very fresh nose of gooseberry, cut grass and lemon.
The palate has vibrant aromatics of zesty lemon, white flowers and nettle. The lively acidity gives this wine a very crisp and fresh feel and combines with the fruity, citrussy flavours to provide a long and clean finish.
The Western Cape is roughly the size of Greece and is the fourth largest province in South Africa. A temperate southern coastline is fringed by mountains whilst the north meets up with the Karoo plateau.
The west coast of the province is extremely dry and windy. Two oceans meet on its coast; the cool Atlantic on the west and the warm Indian Ocean on the south coast. The weather is perfect for growing grapes - rainfall measures up to 40 inches a year, the mild Mediterranean weather provides the perfect climate and the ground is mainly sandy and rough.
