2020 Estate Sauvignon Blanc
Hillcrest’s winemaker Arno Smith has been busy in the cellar with the new labeling and having just completed last week, our new Sauvignon Blanc is ready to hit the shelves. Just as soon as the shelves are allowed to be restocked that is!
Here at Hillcrest, we grow 7 different varietals in total, focusing on the Bordeaux varietals. Our estate consists of predominately white varietals, making up around 80% of our vines, so it is fair to say this is what Hillcrest is most well known for. The close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean allows for a cooler growing climate which you may know, lends itself to an ideal climate for white varietals. Especially Sauvignon Blanc. Our terroir consists of Malmesbury Shale, a sedimentary rock baked by molten magma millions of years ago. This unique soil type adds to the complexity of all our wines.
Whilst we have our premium Atlantic Slopes Sauvignon Blanc, our estate Sauvignon Blanc is not to be overlooked. After all, summer is approaching! Although it may not quite feel like it, and there is nothing better than a beautiful, light-hearted, and fruit-forward savvy for those warm summer days.
Some tasting notes
The 2020 Estate Sauvignon Blanc displays a balanced palate with beautiful citrus blossoms, tropical notes, and a lovely minerality. On further exploration, one can find guava, granadilla, and pineapple coming through on the palate, hints of grass and nettle, and an exciting zesty finish.
This is a Sauvignon Blanc that is made to be enjoyed now but could be kept for a further 3 years. It is fruity, easy-going and a delight for any occasion!
