With its pedigree, terroir expression and evident consistency vintage after vintage, the Cape Point Vineyards Isliedh is now firmly established as one of SA’s finest whites. Named after owner Sybrand’s granddaughter, Isliedh best reflects the uniqueness of their Noordhoek Estate. Cool breezes from the sea make for a slow-growing season, with a late harvest that results in a truly unique Sauvignon Blanc. The pairing with Semillon produces a complex harmony of citrus and stone fruit, with beautiful white floral notes within the layers of rich, spicy oak.

Tasting notes:
'White blend, deserving of SA icon status: with 9 maximum 5-star ratings since 2003 debut. 2018 picked from one block over 5 days. Barrel-fermented sauvignon (40% new oak) with 25% semillon in clay pot. Core of sweet ripe fruit; very bright, with a stony freshness. Oak scarcely noticeable except in breadth & silkiness. Long-lingering. Will greatly benefit from good few years in bottle.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'Arguably the finest white Bordeaux blend in the country – “it's in the top one”, as the English football manager, Brian Clough, used to say - this 30% new oak fermented cuvée of Sauvignon Blanc with 20% Semillon is rich, saline, textured and beautifully wooded with remarkable line and length. Drink 2020-28.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 96/100

'Best wine overall in the Sauv-Sem Blend/Wooded Sauvignon Blanc Report. What would happen after the 2016 departure of the highly skilled Duncan Savage from this Noordhoek property? His former assistant Riandri Visser took over and the wines simply go from strength to strength as this blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon proves.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 95/100
