2018 First Sighting Sauvignon Blanc, Strandveld, Western Cape, South Africa
A wonderfully refreshing wine with a tropical and citrus fruit nose, a full crisp palate and typically expressive notes of herbs and minerality. To be enjoyed with seafood, pasta, salad or simply on its own.
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.
