Durbanville Wine Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2022

R 110.00

The inaugural vintage of a milestone Sauvignon blanc wine has been released by the 13 wineries of the Durbanville Wine Valley that supplied the grapes for its making. While collaborations of this scale are rare, it is the region’s reputation for pioneering and award-winning Sauvignon blanc that makes this an outstanding contribution to the pantheon of South African wine.

The cool, two ocean-influenced climate of the Durbanville Wine Valley is ideal for the slow and flavourful development of wine grapes, particularly Sauvignon blanc. It is for this reason that Durbanville is one of the oldest and most favoured wine regions at the Cape, consistently taking top international honours for Sauvignon blanc in particular.

Simply named Durbanville Sauvignon Blanc, contributors to the collaboration wine include Altydgedacht, Bloemendal, Canto, D'Aria, De Grendel, Diemersdal, Durbanville Hills, Groot Phesantekraal, Klein Roosboom, Maastricht, Meerendal, Nitida and Signal Gun. Its final production was entrusted to veteran winemakers Charles Hopkins and Morgan Steyn of De Grendel.

It’s a dry wine with an alcohol of 13.5%. The colour is a light, lime-green while the wine itself shows outspoken ester flavours of apple, pear, cold tea, and jasmine and thiols of tropical citrus, granadilla and blackcurrant.
The food pairing suggests an aperitif or accompaniment to seafood, salad, pasta, and even light meat dishes.
