Global Sauvignon Blanc Day is 7 May and the ideal opportunity to place this amazing cultivar centre stage.
Sauvignon Blanc is a firm favourite, suited to South African palates, climate and food and our biggest selling category of white wine. Top-performing South African Sauvignons do exceptionally well in an international context and deserve to be recognised as such.
Our Creation Sauvignon Blanc is characterised by a tropical fruit spectrum with a balanced mouthfeel and sans harsh acidity. It is a judicious blend of five different clones planted on low to medium vigour rootstock. A cool climate with Atlantic Ocean breezes and clay-derived Bokkeveld shale soils contribute complexity and texture to the wine. It is generously aromatic, rewarding with intense guava, passion fruit and then … minerality rules! Pair this wine with sushi and sashimi and you have an instant feast. It stands up beautifully to the robust flavours of wasabi, soy sauce (umami) and pickled ginger.
We also produce a Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon blend, where the focus is site-specific rather than cultivar-expressive. This wine has an invigorating salty bouquet reminiscent of the fresh sea breezes caressing our vineyards, complemented by the fresh tropical fruit flavours from the Sauvignon Blanc and the lovely lanolin-like character from the Semillon. The wine is exceptionally good with oysters, mussels or a seafood platter – after all, ‘what grows together goes together’.
