Complex and sophisticated South African Sauvignon with potential to age beautifully. "Tastes just like a Graves. Very punchy and direct with a bone-dry finish but lots of sleek fruit beforehand." - Jancis Robinson.com


Tasting Notes

Savages still populate South Africa’s Cape of Good Hope and chief among them is Duncan Savage, the winemaker at Cape Point Vineyards, the only wine farm on the peninsula and, as far as we are concerned, the best producer of Sauvignon Blanc in South Africa. The vineyards are situated high on a south-west-facing slope, where the cold winds of the Atlantic Ocean meet the cool breezes of False Bay, making a daily temperature that is 10 degrees below than of Stellenbosch and ideal for aromatic grape varieties. The 2011vintage underwent regular lees stirring and contains 20% barrel-fermented wine, which adds texture and ageing potential. 13.5% alc. Drink now-2020.
