Tasting notes:
''We're trying to elevate South African Sauvignon Blanc to the same level as Sancerre,' says Matt Day, who makes a range of distinctive wines from the variety. This cuvée is always lightly wooded and comes from a single vineyard that's picked over a period of 12 days. Waxy, leesy and showing some vanilla spice, it has smoky, savoury finish. Drink 2020-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 94/100

'Signature best-years-only blend of selected high-lying blocks, 2018 follows impressive form of 2017 (92 pts). 9 months in older oak & acacia rounds out delightfully intricate tapestry of herbs, spices & mineral-underpinned kiwifruit. Also in 1.5L.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'Straw-like in appearance with a light green hue. An intense nose bursting with aromas of blackcurrant, fig and flint. The palate is rich and fullbodied, yet precice and serious. A zesty mouthfeel with a crisp minerality that truly expresses the complex and energetic “Perdeblokke” terroir. The palate is complimented by a fine acidity, the wine concludes with a long saline finish.' – Winemaker
