Cape Point Sauvignon Blanc "Noordhoek" '19

Cape Point Vineyards is a family owned, female driven vineyard that is uniquely located in the sleepy town, Noordhoek on the Cape Peninsula, where it is set majestically against the slopes of the famous Chapman’s Peak mountain range and overlooks the nearby Atlantic Ocean. I had the pleasure once of visiting the nearby Noordhoek Beach, and though it was winter then, I walked barefoot into the ocean. A beautiful place made even lovelier by the charming wines. Its easy to see why the bottlings from Cape Point have such an excellent reputation- the climate is perfect for the grapes and the beach terroir is perfectly expressed in the glass. 

This is quintessential South African Sauvignon Blanc- aromatic and briny. The ocean seems to live in your glass, wafting notes of nori and oyster shell. The palate shows elegant layers of citrus fruit with a steely minerality, finishing with a fresh, vibrant acidity that keeps the wine from escaping you too quickly. New world Sauvignon can be one-note all too often, but this one keeps you intrigued.

(I also highly recommend you look up pictures of the grounds. They do not disappoint and will have you dreaming up next February’s escape to a warmer climate.)

This is showing beautifully right now. Pairings here can be simple, as the wine has plenty to say. Think- grilled fish with lemon and herbed heirloom rice or a light lunch of salade Niçoise. Here is a sunny wine for warmer, healthier days.
