'A Cape classic, with 11 maximum 5-star ratings since 2003 debut. 2020 has 80% sauvignon with semillon; wholebunch-picked, natural ferment (like Reserve). Oak (40% new) adds savoury dimension & complexity without diminishing intensity of blackcurrant-led fruit. Silky, grippy finesse, combining lightness of texture with depth of flavour. Fascinating now, but made for ageing.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (97/100)

'Made in a vintage that "taught us the virtues of patience", according to Riandri Visser, this is also a wine that will reward cellaring. Combining barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon, it comes from wind-buffeted blocks at the top of the farm and is suitably Atlantic in style, with chiselled acidity, kelp, citrus and pink grapefruit flavours and fine oak. Drink 2023-29.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 96/100

'The 2020 Isliedh, the Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon blend, has a very delineated and complex bouquet of citrus peel, peach skin, white chocolate and grilled almond, plus brioche scents emerging with time. The palate is well balanced, fresh and very focused, with a fine bead of acidity and a hint of black currant lending complexity on the finish. An outstanding Isliedh from Cape Point. Drink 2022-2036.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 94/100 (Nov 2021)

'Isliedh is a remarkable combination of Cape coastal Sauvignon Blanc drenched in richly textured Sémillon. Both varieties adding to the complexity of the wine. The blend offers beautiful floral notes of white orchid, rose and peach blossom. The fruit leaps from the glass unveiling a harmonious blend of white fruits, ripe nectarine, pink grapefruit, figs and lemon curd. Hints of floral oak spice combined with fresh thyme gives the wine an extra layer of depth. The palate is rich, saline, full and textured with the classic long lasting mineral finish. Drink 2020-28.' – Winemaker

Producer information Cape Point Vineyards is an award-winning wine estate nestled between the fynbos, vineyards and the Atlantic ocean in Noordhoek, Western Cape. On the white wine front, Wine Spectator seems to agree with Neal Martin that Cape Point Vineyards is the go-to address for top Sauvignon Blanc. Their serious Sauvignons are up there with the finest whites in the country, displaying focus, minerality, tension and depth.
