2019 Michelangelo International Wine & Spirit Awards - Double Gold
One of South Africa's biggest selling wines. A wine showing the true diversity of Durbanville terroir in one seamless blend. Blended from ten different vineyard blocks varying in age, clone and site, this wine typifies the Sauvignon Blanc grape as expressed by a leading winery committed to the variety. This vibrant, classically styled Sauvignon Blanc presents a brilliant lemon-lime colour. The nose is complex with and array of tropical fruit, ripe figs and gooseberries. These crisp flavours repeat in the mouth, along with a mineral character followed by a long fruity finish.The distinctive aromas support a wonderfully balanced palate, presenting purity of ripe fruit, coupled with a lingering harmonious finish.
Enjoy with summer foods and salads or serve chilled on its own.
Diemersdal wines are the perfect expression of the distinct terroir of the Durbanville Wine Valley, one of the oldest wine regions in the Cape. The diverse soils and slopes provide the optimum conditions for making premium-quality wines with prominent varietal character. The dry land vineyards develop concentrated flavours, uniformly ripened by the cooling sea-breezes from the Atlantic Ocean.
