Cape Point Vineyards is uniquely located in the Cape Peninsula, where it is set rather majestically against the slopes of the famous Chapman’s Peak mountain range and overlooks the nearby Atlantic Ocean – a mere 1,2km’s away.
Cool sea breezes along with ancient mountain soils make for a unique terroir with a late growing season that results in a world class Sauvignon Blanc with minerals tones and great complexity. Grapes for this wine are hand-selected from 3 sea-facing vineyard parcels in the mid levels of the farm where a combination of the fresh breezes and decomposed granite soils result in a wine that has a distinct mineral edge.
