Noble Hill Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc is the oldest planted grape variety at Noble Hill. These 31 year old vines grow at the highest elevation on the estate. Cool maritime air flows constantly here and gives this lighthearted wine aromas of green apple and gooseberry.
Noble Hill Sauvignon Blanc is all about retaining the light, refreshing, and ultimately elusive flavours contained in the grapes’ skins. Light extraction before pressing, keeping the juice on the skins for a few extra minutes before going to tank. After fermentation in tank, Noble Hill Sauvignon Blanc gains body and weight through extended lees contact (3-6 months).
A delicate aroma eliciting gooseberry, green apple, and coriander leaf. The wine tastes cool and juicy with a crisp natural acidity. The finish is elegant and balanced: perfect for seafood, delicate flavours, or as an apéritif!
Made on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountains in South Africa.
