Waterkloof Estate
Grapes:
Sauvignon Blanc
Wine Description:

From Helderberg in Stellenbosch, cool climate and cool fermentation with a small amount of barrel fermentation. Ripe, rich, exotic gooseberry fruit with complexity and depth.

Tasting Note:

Crushed laurel on the nose with more than a nuance of residual seaside salt. This has a big and textured palate with stone fruit and fennel hints – it is rich and minerally, showing even a slight rocky quality about it. As bracing as the wind through the vines at Waterkloof.
