2013 Cape Point Sauvignon Blanc
Cape Peninsula, South Africa

Loads of flavors including a whiff of capsicum echoed on the palate, a passing sweet stone fruit on the attack, gooseberry and tropical fruits on balance. A tiny bit of Semillon and a small portion of the juice undergoing barrel fermentation add yummy uniqueness. Do try this unusual quaff!

Winemaker's Notes
"Cape Point Sauvignon Blanc Reserve is selected from 3 vineyard parcels on the Noordhoek property. The nose shows delicate floral elements, grapefruit, stone fruit and limes along with subtle wood spice. This all follows to a rich textured palate all held together by an incredible mineral backbone. The wine shows great structure and will develop incredibly well over the next 5-10 years. Serve with line fish, crayfish, scallops and white meat dishes in general."

Technical Notes
"92% Sauvignon Blanc/8% Semillon. 95% barrel fermented in used casks, 5% amphorae, fourteen months on gross lees in barrel, regular mixing. 13.5% alc."
Wine Advocate
"92 pts ...The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc is blended with 8% Semillon and raised in 600-liter French barrels. There is a lovely touch of licorice that comes through on the nose that is full of character and vigor. The palate is well-balanced with superb weight and that menthol character just coming through on the finish. Cape Point Vineyards is my go-to source for-top quality Sauvignon Blanc and their recent releases maintain the standard set. "
