The extreme and mysterious landscape at the southernmost tip of Africa has been the inspiration for the Ghost Corner wines. More than 130 ships have found their last resting place in these treacherous waters where compass readings show no deviation between magnetic and true north and navigation was just about impossible on dark and stormy nights.
Inland from this dramatic coastline, in the Elim Ward, lie the vineyards where David is making the most of excellent growing conditions, cooling south-easterly breezes and extreme climate. The deep lime-rich soil with plentiful slate and gravel deposits give rise to the exceptional Ghost Corner wines.
Only free-run juice is used, resulting in a focussed wine of breathtaking intensity. Lees contact during the winemaking process creates length and richness on the aftertaste, which will progress even more over the next 2 or 3 years.
A unique Sauvignon blanc that cannot be compared to any other. Powerful concentrated layers of green figs and gooseberries, with a touch of grapefruit, fynbos and a steely minerality on the palate.
This wine can stand its own against any great seafood or poultry dishes.
