100% Sauvignon Blanc | Alc 13.5%
This is a delightful, Sancerre-inspired Sauvignon Blanc aged in the traditional amphora vessel. The nose is open and expressive with notes of pear, white peach and blackcurrant. The palate is lively with a zesty, lemon and lime core and a lovely, fresh finish. The juice was wild fermented and matured in 500 litre clay pots for 10 months before bottling. A limited-edition wine, only produced and bottled in outstanding vintages.
The fruit for this wine was sourced from a special block in Elgin - known as the coolest wine region in South Africa. The block is about 300 meters above sea level, further creating perfect slow ripening conditions for an aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with excellent acidity.
