Sauvignon Blanc 2022:
A fresh, fruit forward nose with tropical notes of pineapple intermingled with pears and white peach. These flavours follow onto the palate which also reveals a textured mouthfeel indicating some contact with the lees and crisp acidity as would be expected from a Sauvignon Blanc from Noordhoek.
Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2022:
An intense nose of tropical fruit, pears interspersed with herbs and wrapped in a delicate oaking regime. An explosion of flavours as it hits the tongue with a charming oiliness and mouthfeel making it a perfect accompaniment for food. A harmonious classy wine that keeps evolving in the glass.
Pears and white peaches are first in mind before revealing tropical fruits and flintiness with well integrated oak. Onto the palate this wine impresses with a beautiful hugging mouthfeel allowing the fruits to dance around the tongue to a pleasant aftertaste. Perhaps some lees stirring or just the waxiness from the grape itself. A lovely Semillon.
Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon 2022:
A complex concoction of pears, pineapples, citrus and herbal undertones framed by well integrated oak. Even some elderflower. A sip leads to a concentration of these flavours on the tongue, and with a balanced structure and amazing mouthfeel. This is a serious wine that I am sure top chefs could have fund pairing with their food. And that wine lovers could take in with view.

Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2020:
Intense aromas of pear, green melon, white asparagus and pineapple on the nose that follow through onto the palate. Vanilla tones indicate integrated oak. The entry is dry and intense with natural acidity bringing balance to the fruit. The initial intensity moves to a more melon mid palate and finally finishing off with a slight, but not obtrusive bitterness. An oiliness to the wine suggests some lees contact which is charming.
Sauvignon Blanc 2020:
This is a fresh light Sauvignon Blanc with lovely aromas of pear, tropical fruit and green apple. On the palate there is a crisp and refreshing acidity with tropical fruits and gooseberries coming to the fore. The intensity of fruit carries through to the finish. A little crispier and lighter than the Reserve.
Lovely aromas of citrus fruit, pear and melon all hugged by a smoky vanilla from oaking. The palate is just as generous with a lovely creamy mouthfeel as expected from Semillon. This is a very well balanced wine and a splendid example of a single variety Semillon. A well put together and impressive Semillon.
Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon 2020
Beautiful aromas of pear, white stone fruit mixed with grapefruit and lemons and a slight overlay of honey. The oaking lends some vanilla notes and there is a flinty/wet stone character which is very appealing. The Sauvignon and Semillon work in perfect harmony with this wine from initial entry to finish. This wine will pair well with food as well as sipping on its own. I reckon you can also age this for 5 years. This is a classy wine.
