Cape Agulhas, South Africa
2.9HA block situated on a south-facing slope overlooking the sea below. Soils range from sand to iron-rich Ferricrete at the top of the block. Incredibly low-yielding vines at just over 1T per HA allow for very concentrated flavors and healthy clusters.
Beautifully clear with a subtle lime tinge
Stone fruit, gooseberry, and subtle notes of freshly cut grass.
White pear, youthful kiwi, and subtle green notes all wrapped up in a intriguing minerality from the salty sea air.

Wines for the Wild
Harvested by hand in early 2021 with the Sauvignon Blanc coming off the vines first followed by the Semillon two weeks later. Hand sorted prior to de-stemming, the juice was pressed to stainless steel where it was cooled and allowed to settle out for 24 hours. The next day the juice was racked off the rough lees and fermentation would follow maintaining a temp of 15 degrees C throughout. Dry wine remained on the fine lees in stainless steel in full tanks until October 1st, 2021 when bottling prep began.
