Sauvignon Blanc thrives in chilly, coastal vineyards, like those of South Africa’s Western Cape, the source of this zesty white.
What You Need To Know
Cape Point Vineyards is the only winery on the Cape Peninsula, a narrow, rocky strip of land that ends at the Cape of Good Hope, Africa’s extreme southwestern tip. Here, icy Atlantic currents meet the warmer waters of the Indian Ocean. As with vineyards on the coasts of New Zealand and Chile, the sea-chilled climate makes the Cape perfect territory for Sauvignon Blanc. Cape Point Vineyards’ respected winemaker Duncan Savage (who has his own tiny label on the side, Savage Wines) offers an expert hand with the variety, here highlighting its grassy, mineral side. Fermenting some of the wine in barrels (as opposed to stainless steel tanks) gives it an unusually round texture, as does adding a touch of Sémillon, a white variety traditionally blended with Sauvignon Blanc in Bordeaux.
