Region: Helderberg, Stellenbosch
Uva Mira Mountain Vineyards is situated in the coastal region of South Africa, an area that boasts some of the oldest soils in the world. Evidence of this lies in the tall, weathered mountains that grace the surrounding landscape and the Helderberg Mountain Range against which our vineyards nestle.
Great care is taken when designating our vineyard sites to a particular root-stock, varietal and clone. The latest in technological research has been carried out on soil profiling of each individual vineyard to unlock nature’s secrets as to which rootstock, varietal and clone will flourish in each specific location. Harnessing nature to produce wines of the highest quality in the world.
Our vision is to merge traditional winemaking practices with the latest innovations in technology to create defining modern wines of an international standard with the ultimate respect for our resources.
These Sauvignon Blanc vines are planted on the highest vineyards on the Estate ( 400 – 470m alt ), on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain range, facing False Bay. The early morning breezes cool the vines, which contributes to the superb natural acidity in the grapes. Decomposed granite soils contribute to the effortless minerality on the palate.
