Notes

97% Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Semillon

Tasting notes:
'The 2017 Noordhoek Sauvignon Blanc, from the Cape Point estate, carries the new name for what was hitherto Cape Point Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc. As such, it has the "Cape Town" Wine of Origin designation. This comes from selected parcels on the estate, blended with 3% Sémillon, and saw eight months’ lees contact. The bright, vivid bouquet features fresh green apple, kiwi fruit and Conference pear aromas that are well defined. The palate is well balanced with bright fresh green apple, pear, gooseberry and light citric notes, a fine bead of acidity and good length on the finish. Very fine. Drink now and over the next five or six years.' – Neal Martin Report 2018, 91/100

'Cape Point’s second-tier Sauvignon Blanc comes from sandstone and granite soils in the lower part of the farm. It’s everything you expect from a 2017: zippy, zesty and textured, with lime and passion fruit flavour, some stony reduction and a long, satisfying finish. 2017-19'. – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2017, 93/100

Winemaker's comments:
This Sauvignon Blanc is drinking beautifully at present, but try to exercise patience as it will only improve over the next 2-5 years. Best enjoyed with fresh line fish, oysters, sushi, crayfish and summer dishes in general.

Decomposed sandstone
