Although drinking beautifully at present, with a complex array of tropical fruit, grapefruit and limes on the palate, do try to exercise patience, as it will only improve in the next 3-5 years! The palate is focused and racy, made in a style to be a wonderful food companion.


Tasting Notes

Cape Point vineyards are the only ones situated on the Cape Peninsula. The high winds from the cold Atlantic ocean (1.2 km from the vineyards) and the sea breezes from False Bay make a daily temperature 10 degrees less than in Stellenbosch, which makes for a slow ripening period so that the grapes can be picked at optimal ripeness, as well as low crops, which adds concentration, and complexity if handled correctly.


Press Note:

92 pts Robert Parker, Neal Martin, Oct 31 issue Over the last 10 years, Cape Point Vineyards has won two Decanter World Wine Award Trophies and numerous Platter 5 Stars. To be exact, 11 5 Stars! Their reputation for producing some of South Africa's finest Sauvignon is well deserved.
