Houtskool | Sauvignon Blanc


This complex cool climate wine has benefited from time in the bottle and displays a mélange of orchard fruit, laced with tangy citrus zest and a hint of mineral salt from the proximity of the vines to the ocean. Terrific backbone of natural acidity is in harmony with pristine fruit and bodes well for aging. A true benchmark Sauvignon Blanc from the Master! ~ Dr Winifred E Bowman ~ Cape Wine Master ~ Wine, Food and Lifestyle Writer

 Sommelier note: Crayfish bisque. Petit Poulet & creamed spinach. Alikreukel – three ways (ref. Cellarmasters in the Kitchen)

 Winemakers note: An own design after many years of research on terroir, origin of fruit, barrel-size, -age and cooper craftsmanship, to find the barrel best suited for the wine I had in mind. A style which rewarded me with Diners Club Winemaker of the Year, Cape Winemakers Guild Action success, Tim Atkin 95+ awards and five-star Platter’s status.
