45% of the blend are Sauvignon Blanc grapes sourced from the central part of Elgin, this appellation is situated on a plateau between Somerset West and Botriver and is cocooned by mountain ranges, giving the valley a kind of bowl shape. It has lesser influence from the ocean and slightly more extreme minimum and maximum temperatures, giving it a semi -continental type of climate.
Newton Johnson Sauvignon Blanc
Fine, crystalline character with traces of flint. Distinct perfumed wafts of sweet lime blossom and earthy fynbos broaden into generous apricot and a waxy underlayer. Generous texture with weight and persistence is counter balanced with bracing acidity and lemon drops lingering in the finish.
