Star Hill vineyards are planted on the Tradouw Highlands, a plain 723m above sea level on the Langeberg mountains between Montagu and Barrydale and an official Wine of Origin designation.
Vinfication is by Robertson’s Lourens van der Westhuizen and he’s come up with a really smart Sauvignon Blanc 2014.
An entirely attractive herbal top note before a palate showing lime through granadilla. Really good concentration and bright acidity make for a really well balanced wine. Well worth seeking out – price: R75 a bottle.
