2010 WALKER BAY SAUVIGNON BLANC

2010 WALKER BAY SAUVIGNON BLANC




Sauvignon blanc is our eternal crowd pleaser!  Where each year we bottle it fresh while the fragrance is bright and a loving palate displays its certainty as South Africans best performing white wine.

Our geographic location lying within five kilometres of the cool Atlantic Ocean offers the best temperature zone that the Cape can contribute.  Added to this is the heavy shale clay soil which typifies the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley and lends an inviting tropical tone to the flavour profile of this
vintage.

Vintage 2010 was preceded by some startling weather conditions which fortunately had no adverse effect on the Sauvignon Blanc grape other than to present a reduced crop - compared to the two previous years!

This wine has a strong vibrant aroma, tropical fruits of pineapple, litchi and granadilla.  This is followed by a firm crisp palate signalling a determined structure with parallel fruit calling one straight back to the
glass!
