      Tasting Notes
      The Rustenberg Stellenbosch Sauvignon Blanc is grown at some of the highest altitudes that vineyards are grown at in the Stellenbosch region; just over 550m above sea level, right against the Simonsberg Mountain. The cooling effect of altitude and the oceanic breeze blowing off False Bay and Table Bay which are both within line of sight of the vineyards, combined with the vineyards being planted on West facing slopes make this ideal for the production of a full flavoured, more tropical styled Sauvignon Blanc. Made without the influence of oak the wines are aged on their lees for further palate weight and complexity to balance out the wines' natural acidity. Much loved for it’s freshness, mouth watering acidity and upfront fruit. Rustenberg makes a slightly fuller, richer style of Sauvignon Blanc without relying on the influence of oak.

      The intrinsic Sauvignon Blanc characteristics of tropical fruits, melon and gooseberry, with underlying tones of apple blossom, kiwi, pineapple and passion fruit sustained on a fresh, crisp and well balanced palate with prodigious length.

      The Sauvignon Blanc, which comes from the estate fruit from vines at 580 meters above sea level, has a very fragrant, tropical-tinged bouquet with touches of apricot and guava infusing the citrus fruit. You could compare this to a fine Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The palate has a crisp entry with white peach and passion fruit notes, a fine line of acidity and a lively, lightly spice finish. This is worth seeking out.
