'Spontaneously fermented and matured for 11 months in older 500-litre barrels, the Wild Ferment 2020 has great composure. On the nose, white peach and even a little apricot plus leesy, earthy, almost mushroom-like notes while the palate is relatively rich and broad with gentle acidity. Layers of flavour, subtle and balanced.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 94/100

'Naturally fermented in older 500-litre barrels, this Blanc Fumé style is sensitively wooded, showing toast, gunflint and gooseberry flavours, leesy weight and texture and a savoury, umami undertone. Drink 2021-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100

'Perfectly ripe Sauvignon Blanc fermented with wild yeast in large wood format results in an array of complexity: textured, multi-layered with minerality, salinity, blackcurrant, white stone fruits, a rich palate and long zesty finish.' – Winemaker

Producer information In 1997, Andrew Gunn purchased the beautiful Geelbeksvlei farm located 420 meters above sea-level, overlooking the Elgin Valley. This apple and pear farm was no longer proving to be profitable, and so with the advantageous location of the farm, Andrew decided to plant vines and pursue winemaking. Its high altitude and close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean results in a cool mesoclimate which has a moderating influence and results in consistent quality.
