Rustenberg Wines Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Grape variety: Sauvignon Blanc

Area: Stellenbosch

Abv: 13%

Awards: Decanter World Wine Awards Silver, 91 Points Tim Atkin

Rustenberg is globally recognised as one of the top 5 wineries in South Africa. This farm was started in 1941 on the slopes of the iconic Simonsberg. The tasting room is one of the grander with a long curving staircase leading downstairs into a beautiful cool wood-lined tasting room which gives you a clear indication of the standard of the wines produced. 

This Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc is grown at some of the highest latitudes in Stellenbosch, up to 550m. It is a small batch wine, so reasonably rare. To me, this is an Old World Sauvignon Blanc where the grapes are handpicked, destemmed and then fermented in French oak barrels. After fermentation the wine is aged on its lees for 6 months in new, 2nd, and 3rd fill barrels. 

When drinking this wine expect those well-recognised Sauvignon Blanc characteristics like melon, peach and gooseberry to be slightly more rounded and rick giving hints of pineapple and passion fruit. 

Demorgenzon DMZ Sauvignon Blanc 2019

DeMorgenzon Wines is situated to the west of Stellenbosch on the slopes of Ribbokkop. Demorgenzon have received more recognition for their white wines. This wine in particular received a 4 star John Platter Award. 

This is a dry white wine with more mineral character. If you wanted to compare this to the DMZ Chenin, this has less sugar but similar acidity. They describe some character of nettles with passion fruit and citrus. It is a good representation of a dry Sauvignon, but not fully tart. 

De Morgenzon wines  say that they play classical music in the vineyards and in the cellar every day all day. I guess we'll just have to go check!

Paul Cluver Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Grape variety: Sauvignon Blanc

Area: Elgin

Abv: 13.9%

Awards: Decanter World Wine Awards Silver, 91 Points Tim Atkin

I recently visited this estate via a long detour on the Wine2Whales cycle event and then did the small section where you cycle through three layers of fruit boxes that form a large tower. A great experience, and the wine continues to transport me back to that day.  

The winery forms part of the De Rust Estate that forms part of the Unesco World Heritage site of Kogelberg Biosphere. This area is an ideal cool climate wine region in South Africa. 

The wine is fresh and clean with notes of passion fruit and grapefruit that highlight the cold climate region. This wine has achieved some great rewards and offers excellent value.
