A blend of 100 pr cent Sauvignon Blanc sourced from vineyard sites in Stellenbosch, Durbanville and the cool climate Elgin region, the wine is aged on primary lees for three months following cold fermentation.

The premium positioned Vintage Selection range also features a single varietal Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Pinotage in addition to a number of innovative blends including Shiraz Mouvedre Viognier and Malbec Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot.
