About this Item

Sauvignon Blanc Reserve, 2015
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Cape Point Vineyards has one of the Cape's most unique locations, situated on the narrow southern tip of the Cape Peninsula, where it is set rather majestically against the slopes of the famous Chapman’s Peak mountain range and overlooks the nearby Atlantic Ocean – a mere 1,2km’s away. They pioneered the area, single-handedly creating a Wine of Origin demarcation, and along with initial winemaker Duncan Savage established an international reputation and benchmark for unique and age-worthy white wines, most prominently Bordeaux whites.

Critics Ratings

 

'Sourced entirely from sites on granite soils, located in the upper part of the farm, this wooded Sauvignon Blanc with 10% Semillon wouldn’t look out of place alongside a top Pessac-Léognan. Leesy, concentrated and skilfully oaked, it has lovely brine, green herb and oyster shell notes. Drink: 2016-21' - Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2016, 95/100

'Older-oak-matured 15 remains Industry benchmark, profoundly expressing variety & terroir. Floral aromas lead to lime & stonefruit with 10% Semillon adding to rich texture, all underscored by steely minerality.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2017, 4.5*
