Isliedh

Cape Point Vineyards Isliedh

Named after Sybrand’s granddaughter, Isliedh best reflects the uniqueness of our Noordhoek Estate: Here a special block of severely windswept vines yield tiny crops of concentrated and well structured Sauvignon Blanc.

Isliedh is created in a tight mineral style for enjoyment with great food which will reward for many years to come. The wine displays a complex array of Stone fruit, white floral notes, lemons, marmalade and spicy oak. The complex palate is rich, full and long, retaining the characteristic Cape Point mineral edge. Cape Point Vineyards Isliedh can be best enjoyed over the next 5 years and possibly even 10.
