Tasting notes

Sauvignon Blanc is the most popular white wine cultivar in South Africa, yet those produced in the Hemel-en-Aarde are imbued with a character all their own. Our mature vineyards are planted on heavy shale clay soils, and with their location less than five kilometres from the Indian Ocean, the cool maritime terroir is ideal for crafting expressions of Sauvignon Blancs defined by minerality, freshness and complexity.
