About this Item

Vloekskoot Sauvignon Blanc – Wooded, 2021
12 (2 x 6) 750ml

“My winemaking philosophy is quite simple. It’s input is equal to output. I feel very strong about terroir. One should spend more time in the vineyard than in the cellar because that is where the great wines are made.” - Bartho Eksteen

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Whole bunch pressed, no settling. Naturally fermented in older, big wood. Matured for 11 months on lees. Bottled with minimum interference. Serve with crayfish bisque, petit poulet and creamed spinach or alikreukel trio (ref. the CWG book "Cellarmasters in the Kitchen").

This is the most successful Sauvignon Blanc in the history of the CWG Auction. Acclaimed by international wine advocate as the best wooded Sauvignon Blanc amongst 41 icons from around the world, making this a true benchmark.

Tasting Note: Nods towards Pessac-Léognan, but has a Cape character all of its own. Flinty, grapefruit, fresh lime, green herb flavours. Focused, with superb intensity. Older oak adds complexity and gravitas.

If you can put away some bottles for a couple of years, you can delay the pleasure and have it back with interest for anything up to 6 years after harvest.
