The Sauvignon Blanc was fermented with selected yeast strains in stainless steel tanks, but around 18 balling it was transferred to 500l barrels, where it completed fermentation. The Semillon was naturally fermented in a Stockinger Foudre. The Sauvignon Blanc was matured in 500l barrels for 8 months (50% new, 50% old). The Semillon was matured in a Stockinger Foudre for 8 months. After the 8 months the wine was blended and bottled.

Winemaker's Note

The Franschhoek Sauvignon Blanc component adds some notes of tropical fruit, blackcurrant and lime. The Walker Bay component adds minerality, flintiness and great acid balance. To round it off the Franschhoek Semillon adds fullness and waxiness on the pallet.


The Sauvignon Blanc was harvested from grapes from Franschhoek & Walker Bay. The Franschhoek Sauvignon Blanc was harvested first at 21° balling early February, a few weeks later the Sauvignon Blanc from Walker Bay was harvested at 21.5° balling, as this is a much cooler area, it gives the grapes more hanging time on the vine. The Semillon component is from an old bush vine block in Franschhoek that was planted in 1905. The Semillon was harvested in mid-February at 22° balling. The Sauvignon Blanc was destemmed and crushed and the Semillon was whole bunch pressed.


Accessible now and has the potential to age until 2030.
