Winterhoek Sauvignon Blanc 2021

By , 31 January 2024



The Macdonald and Jeffery families farm deciduous fruit in the Agter Witzenberg valley, which sits between 750 – 950 metres above sea level outside Ceres. They have also long dabbled in wine grape farming (notably plantings are ungrafted) and the respected Donovan Rall currently takes charge of vinification.

The Winterhoek Sauvignon Blanc 2021 is a dramatic offering. Pronounced green melon and blackcurrant on the nose before a palate that is rich, round and smooth textured. At 14% alcohol, it’s not exactly “racy” but it does speak of a particular terroir. Price: R135 a bottle.

CE’s rating: 91/100.
