Spioenkop ‘1900’ Sauvignon Blanc 2017

R170.00

Koen’s Sauvignon Blancs have never been given the credit we think they deserve. The fruit for the ‘1900’ Sauvignon Blanc is sourced solely from Spioenkop farm. This makes it incredible value. Rich, powerful and beautifully balanced, it is a wine of sheer class. This is not your average Sauvignon; a little bit of skin contact in the press helps give this a wine full of complexity, tension and balance. Tim Atkin: 93pt

Belgian native Koen farms a hilltop in the middle of Elgin WO he planted to vines in the early 2000s. A qualified engineer and former sommelier, he has a very clear vision for what he wants to achieve. His wines reflect his European heritage while still reflecting the terroir of Spioenkop. The two new single-site Chenin Blancs are particularly interesting – the ‘Sarah Raal’ is from ferricrete soils and the ‘Johanna Brandt’ is from shale. Brilliant, fine examples of cooler-climate South African Chenin Blanc. Both the Riesling and Pinotage wines are among the best in South Africa.
