Fleur du Cap
Essence du Cap Sauvignon Blanc
A myriad of aromas follows, such as grapefruit, lime, passion fruit, peach, guava, fresh cut grass and gooseberries. The palate is mineral and linear with a beautiful richness elegantly balanced by the fresh acidity. The finish is fresh, full and lingers in the mouth.
This Sauvignon Blanc is the ideal accompaniment to seafood dishes such as oysters, buttery line fish and other shellfish, but can also be enjoyed with Thai dishes, summer tapas and green salads.
About the Winemaker
Fleur du Cap (French for “Flower of the Cape”) is greatly inspired by the Cape Floral Kingdom – a wildflower region famed for its natural beauty and rich biodiversity – with each species blossoming in the specific soil and climate best suited to their needs. It is this Cape Floral Kingdom that has greatly inspired our wines to not be defined by a single place or vineyard. Our philosophy is based around the freedom to explore – to find our grapes where they grow best, rather than be constrained by district, farm, climate or even vineyard. Our winemakers have access to the widest geography of vineyards in South Africa. This unrestricted journey across the Cape Winelands is what allows them to craft highly-lauded wines which exemplify regional excellence. --
