Notes

Bloemendal’s first cellar was completed in 1920 and during the 1960’s significant amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz were planted on the farm. Bloemendal concentrates on the noble cultivars and sacrifices quantity in favour of quality. Our multiple award winning Bloemendal Suider Terras Sauvignon Blanc which is harvested from the slopes of the south facings, low yielding, 35-year-old, bush vines which are located at 350 meters above sea level. The cool Atlantic Ocean air provides a cool blanket over these vines which produce phenomenal quality grapes.

Tasting notes:
'These contoured, south- and south-west facing vineyards consistently produce one of my favourite Cape Sauvignon Blancs. Expertly wooded, with zesty acidity, a creamy mid-palate and grapefruit and smoked lemon flavours, it’s like a top Pessac-Léognan at a very affordable price. Drink: 2016-2020.' – Tim Atkin MW 95/100

'Off windswept southerly terrace has gripping intensity, fantastic concentration. Superbly balanced, both weight and agility carrying heady blackcurrant, lemongrass features with endless length. Older French oak matured. Will reward cellaring.' – Platter's Wine Guide 2017, 5 stars
