Sauvignon Blanc wears its origin on its sleeve so to speak. The terroir it is grown in plays a significant role in the final flavour profile, structure and crispness.
Although South Africa is generally a warm region, Sauvignon Blancs thrive in the cool climate of Durbanville where the vines are situated only 10km from the ocean and cooled by the south-easterly breezes blowing in from nearby False Bay. The sea breezes and mists cool down the vineyards, slowing ripening and intensifying flavours, crafting wines with crisp acidity and integrated flavours. The grapes are hand-harvested from a variety of high-altitude and lower-lying vineyards to create a taste profile that best represents the area’s unique terroir.
The Durbanville Hills winemaking team has captured the cool climate taste of Sauvignon Blanc across their ranges, from sparkling to still, reserve and noble late harvest. Although many wines are produced for early enjoyment, they have found over the years that the longevity of their wines has rewarded them years after bottling.
