Mon Vieux ‘Hell’s Heights’ Sauvignon Blanc – Most of the vines involved are old and/or from mountainous sites. 535 metres up the sheer slopes of the Simonsberg clings a triangular block of Sauvignon Blanc with fantastic elemental exposure, low yields, tight bunches of fruit that are ripe but mineral. The grapes are hand-picked at night.
The wine is naturally fermented in stainless steel then 100% barrel-aged for 6 months in 600L new French demi-muids. It is unfined and very gently filtered.
Mon Vieux ‘Hell’s Heights’ Sauvignon Blanc
Powerful muscular Sauvignon Blanc which reflects the rocky provenance of the grapes in its struck flint aromas. This is crunchy and assertive with matching flavours of fine linear oak. A bottled drop of time and place, hand-made in South Africa.
Great value at this price!
