282 Sauvignon Blanc
Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
From: South Africa, Elgin ridge
By: Marion & Brian Smith @ Elgin Ridge
From vineyards 282 metres above sea level on Elgin Ridge, South Africa, Sauvignon Blanc 282 is a dry, crisp white from shale and clay soils untouched by chemicals and tended with organic care. This refreshing wine is filtered, but not fined and contains minimal amounts of sulphur.
Wine loving brits Marion and Brian upped sticks and moved to South Africa with a dream to create an organic vineyard. Elgin Valley has a climate similar to Burgundy, with warm summers and cold winters; Atlantic breezes keep the vines fresh and dry. Marion and Brian work hard to keep their estate running to natural principles, the vines are nourished by their own compost and kept free from weeds by ducks.
