“Sauvignon Blanc is quite site-specific, although anyone who enjoys the likes of Cape Point Vineyards will be aware of the heights it can reach”
(Neal Martin – Wine Advocate)
Cape Point Vineyards is uniquely located in the Cape Peninsula, where it is set rather majestically against the slopes of the famous Chapman’s Peak mountain range and overlooks the nearby Atlantic Ocean – a mere 1,2km’s away.
Cool sea breezes along with ancient mountain soils make for a unique terroir with a late growing season that results in a world class Sauvignon Blanc with minerals tones and great complexity.
To demonstrate the complex potential of the Sauvignon Blanc grape and to tantalize the palates of Sauvignon Blanc enthusiasts, Cape Point Vineyards will be focusing on four different styles:
|Sauvignon Blanc||Noordhoek |
| || || || |
|A delightful reminder of freshly picked apricots, ripe pears, apples and granadilla with a hint of fynbos and dried herbs. a refreshingly bright acidity and a long lingering fruity finish. ||A refreshing coastal style; white grapefruit and a hint of floral fynbos with our signature steely minerality. A fresh and vibrant acidity creates a long lingering palate length.||An elegant representation of our terroir; floral spice, cardamom and white pepper. Lemon, tangerine and ripe nectarines with notes of kelp and a salty sea breeze. *Barrel Fermented.||Shows off the beauty of pairing Sauvignon blanc with Semillon, a complex harmony of citrus and stone fruit, with beautiful white floral notes within the layers of rich, spicy oak.|
