I personally don’t like Sauvignon blanc all that much, but this does not taste like traditional Sauvignon blanc at all. It is ripe, barrel-fermented and aged. An awesome, very different expression of South African Sauvignon.

Story

This block of grapes grows very high on the Helderberg mountain in Stellenbosch. The owner of the vineyard makes a sweet wine from it. The technique he uses is to pinch the stems of the bunches whilst it is still on the vine. He then leaves the grapes on the vine to dry. Unfortunately, what’s been happening is that the baboons from the mountain come down and feast on the top part of the vineyard. He therefore needed a buffer between his precious sweet stuff and the mountain baboons and decided to give me the top part of this awesome vineyard (on the flat top section). This fools the baboons into thinking that there are no grapes left on the bottom slope. His plan works like a bomb! (and I’m not complaining at all!) I can’t get much so this is a limited production of about 835 bottles.

The label is a combination of Linocuts, and hand-drawings showing an a-symmetrical shape that is very close to my heart. Sort of similar to the a-symmetrical wine in the bottle. It tastes the complete opposite of what one might expect.
