Product Description

The 2016 Cape Point Sauvignon Blanc, still the product of famed winemaker Duncan Savage (who has since left Cape Point to focus on his own brand), offers a complex nose of fresh, tropical fruit, citrus, passion fruit, and light grassiness with focused minerality. The palate is direct and racy, crisply finished, a Sauvignon Blanc that will pair nicely at mealtime.

Varietal Composition: 97 Sauvignon Blanc, 3 Semillon
Appellation: Cape Point WO, South Africa
Aging: 3 months on fine lees in stainless steel tank

90 Points - Vinous Media
"Bright, light yellow. Subtle yet pungent hints of lime zest, white pepper and anise. Densely packed, intensely flavored and penetrating, with a suggestion of bitter white grapefruit peel currently clashing with the wine's alcohol. Hints of fresh herbs and tarragon stay behind on the finish. Offers greater density, texture and length than the Stonehaven but not up to the normal high standards of this bottling." -ST, 5/2017

89 Points - Wine Advocate
"Blended with 3% Semillon from vines on the estate located on sandier soils compared to the rest of the farm, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc has a crisp, grass clipping and gooseberry scented bouquet. The palate is fresh and linear with a light marine influence, a touch of sea spray splashing over the Granny Smith and nettle notes on the finish. Enjoy this over the next 3-4 years." -NM, 4/28/17
