Region: Cape Point
Cape Point Vineyards is uniquely situated in the Cape Peninsula on a narrow strip of land perfectly poised between the disparate oceans of the icy Atlantic and the warmer currents of False Bay. Buffeted by cool breezes from the nearby oceans their vines enjoy a unique microclimate with slow ripening conditions – ideal for the production of world class Sauvignon Blanc.
The Cape Point Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Reserve is a full wine with great levels of complexity. The grapes for this wine are selected on the vines of 3 distinct vineyard parcels on Cape Point Vineyards’ Noordhoek Estate.
Additional levels of interest are added in the final blend by including percentages of Semillon and barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc. Released 14 months after vintage, this wine will continue to develop and improve for many years.The nose shows delicate floral elements, grapefruit, stone-fruit and limes along with subtle wood spice, following through to a rich textured palate held together by an incredible mineral backbone.The wine shows great structure and will develop incredibly well over the next 10 years.
