Variety Sauvignon Blanc
Vineyard Elgin is the coolest wine growing appellation in South Africa with an average day temperature in summer of 28 °C, making it ideal to cultivate and make stellar Sauvignon blanc. The soils of this vineyard on our Helderfontein farm, being one of our two farms, is mixture of soft Tafelberg Shale and Sandstone. Enough dappled sunlight into beautifully huge and well-managed canopies of these vines ensures that we have high concentration of fruit flavours in the grapes. The cool climate and gradual ripening results in high natural organic acidity with very low pH.
