You would be hard pressed to find a more elegant Sauvignon Blanc anywhere close to this price. 5% Semillon is blended with the Sauvignon Blanc to soften the mouth-feel and add aromatic complexity. The vineyards that produce this wine grow on the picturesque south-facing Noordhoek slopes that overlook the Atlantic on the Cape Peninsulas’ southern-most vineyards. The hand-picked harvest takes place in the early hours of the morning to preserve the primary fruit. Fermentation take place mostly in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with 5% fermented in barrel, after which the wine is aged on the lees for 9 months. This regal Sauvignon Blanc exhibits a complex array of tropical fruit, grapefruit and limes all held together by an incredible mineral backbone. There is a yin-yang of invigorating acidity and an underlying creamy richness; the crispness from the preserved primary fruit while the lees ageing adds a viscous textural weight. Drink this wine with fresh line fish, oysters, sushi, grilled veggies and all manner of poultry. 2014 C olosi N ero d ’A volA T erre s iCiliANe , i TAly For decades Sicilian wines imported to the USA were victims of high yields, over produced, over ripe harvests. Sicilian wineries trying to compete with better known DOC’s in the rest of the country offered as much volume as possible with low prices on the shelf. Recently producers like Terre Nerre, COS and Colosi have changed this paradigm. The 2014 Colosi Nero d’Avola is a product of oenologist Piero Colosi, and his father Pietro. The two take full advantage of the hot sunny days, mountainous terrain and unique soil conditions to produce a high quality Nero D’Avola at an affordable price! Ripe red fruit, balanced acidity, integrated softer tannins make this wine a fantastic pairing to lighter meats, BBQ, pizza and rustic Mediterranean dishes.
Producer
Cape Point Vineyards was established in 1996 by Sybrand van der Spuy, an investment banker by trade. Initially he settled in Noordhoek, on the Cape Peninsula, to start mining kaolin. However he quickly realized that this location would be ideal to grow vines. Sybrand purchased a property near the quarry and restored the old Dutch homestead. He also worked on replacing the invasive alien vegetation with indigenous fynbos and yellowwood trees. He then pursued his dream and planted vineyards overlooking the idyllic pearly white sand Noordhoek beach. In 1997 the first Sauvignon Blanc vineyard was finally planted against the mountain slope. The winery now has 30 ha under vines which are located on two estates; one in Noordhoek and the other one in Scarborough. Both estates benefit from their unique location on the Cape Peninsula at the confluence of the two oceans, namely the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Ocean. The Peninsula is a narrow strip of land, 7 Miles at its widest point where grapes enjoy slow-ripening conditions, ideal for producing premium wines. Cape Point Vineyards has identified two different types of terroirs each with its own specificities with regards to the soil and the climatic conditions. The Cape Peninsula is well known for its microclimates, mainly due to the ocean influences from both sides but also its mountain relief. On the cooler, South facing slopes of the Noordhoek estate, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Semillon were planted.
