2016 Adamastor Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Strandveld, Cape Agulhas, South Africa
Regular price £103.50
Sauvignon Blanc (54%)/ Semillon (46%). Named after Adamastor, the god of wine and storms which is reflected in the tempestuous weather of Cape Agulhas. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, the Semillon was matured for 10 months on its lees in 500L old French oak barrels to give texture on the palate. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and notes of white stone fruits, citrus and a distinctive minerality on the finish.
Nestled between Elim and Cape Agulhas, and just 9km from the sea, lies the secluded Strandveld Vineyards. This wind-swept winery derives its name from the belt of land which spans the tempestuous tip of Africa’s southernmost coastline. At almost 35 degrees below the equator, this part of the Cape is characterised by severe winds, billowing mist and below average temperatures. A unique combination of maritime climate and diverse soil types work together to create the terroir which distinguishes the wines of Strandveld Vineyards.
