Ghost Corner Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc 2022


Region: Elim

Tasting notes

“The nose is captivating with lemon curd and grapefruit marmalade taking centre stage. The palate is forthcoming with a kaleidoscope of flavours including crème brûlée, slight honeyed notes and a lemon/lime citrus freshness. The integrated acidity creates a platform where the mélange of summer fruits, caramelised pineapple and roasted almond flavours dance across the palate, adding intrigue and contemplation. This is not your average Sauvignon Blanc with its rich, opulent, creamy mouthfeel and tell-tale Cape Agulhas terroir saline final ending” – Sandy Harper CWM

“Winemaking involves spontaneous fermentation in 400-litre barrels of which 13% were new, before maturation lasting 10 months. The nose shows some flinty reduction alongside hay, fynbos and sea-breeze plus peach, citrus, some leesy character and spice. The palate, meanwhile, has nice weight and texture but remains direct thanks to vibrant acidity, the finish long and saline. A compelling argument that Sauvignon Blanc doesn’t always have to be facile and well worth the money.” – CE

Pairing suggestions:

Partners well with tomato-based dishes, including soups, salads and pasta sauces. A great partner to salads dressed with vinaigrette or grilled fish with a lemon dressing. Delicious accompanying fresh asparagus with parma ham, parmesan shavings and freshly ground black pepper, goat’s milk cheese, fresh oysters or tempura-battered prawns. The versatility of this wine is far-reaching
