Wine producer, Dirk Human, is the owner, winemaker and viticulturist of the Black Oystercatcher boutique wines. The Human Family has farmed successfully on the Moddervlei farm, where the Black Oystercatcher winery and restaurant are housed, for generations. The farm is situated between the small towns of Elim, Bredasdorp and Agulhas, in the Overberg region in South Africa.
By 2003, the first boutique wines were bottled. Dirk named the new wines after the rare Black Oystercatcher birds, which, like the grapes, thrive along the coastline around the cool tip of Africa, Today, only 30 000 bottles of Black Oystercatcher boutique wines are produced a year – making the wines truly exclusive.
This Sauvignon Blanc has a forthcoming nose of nettles and capsicum which is followed by hints of gooseberries and tropical fruit. This is complemented by a full palate with good mineral crispness and mouth watering sweet and sour flavours.
It is light enough to enjoy on its own, deliciously refreshing on a summer’s afternoon.
