“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 Noordhoek in the Cape Point Peninsula where our close proximity to the ocean and the ancient soils of the Table Mountain Range not only provides a phenomenal setting, but also a terroir ideal for the production of world-class Sauvignon Blanc that is strong in minerality and 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 three different styles:
The Cape Point Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc is accessible in style, generously aromatic on the nose with a racy, fruit focussed freshness. This wine is 100% tank fermented and made to be enjoyed immediately.
We source beautiful fruit from one of the oldest vineyard parcels in Cape Town as well as selected vineyard parcels on our Estate that showcase fruit with more traditional flavours.
The Cape Point Sauvignon Blanc Reserve is a full wine with great levels of complexity. Harvested from 3 vineyard parcels situated on the mid-slope on granite soils, where vines are low yielding, weaker and more exposed.
The result is a wine that is incredibly expressive of our terroir showcasing minerality and elegance. The Reserve is round and generous on both the palate and the nose where it shows floral elements, perfume, and hints of citrus blossom. The truly unique experience is the unexpected crisp and salty finish derived from our close proximity to the cold Atlantic Ocean.
Fermented in French oak barrels Released 14 months after vintage, this wine will continue to develop and improve for many years.
Pronounced (ai-lay), a tribute to owner Sybrand van der Spuy’s first granddaughter, Cape Point Vineyards Isliedh, shows off the beauty of pairing Sauvignon blanc with Semillon.
Made from grapes grown on the higher, clay-rich, granite soils, which is then fermented in French Oak (Sauvignon Blanc) and locally produced clay amphora (Semillon) to display a complex harmony of citrus and stone fruit, with beautiful white floral notes within the layers of rich, spicy oak.
