The Rustenberg Stellenbosch Sauvignon Blanc is grown at some of the highest altitudes in the Stellenbosch region; just over 550m above sea level, right against the Simonsberg Mountain. The cooling effect of altitude and the oceanic breeze make this ideal place for a full flavoured, more tropical styled Sauvignon Blanc. Made with no oak the wines are aged on their lees to balance out the wines natural acidity.
90 Points on Decanter. "A bright and fresh palate with grapefruit, hints of blood orange, and tangy acids with a round mouthfeel and long finish."
