Pretty venerable by South African standards, Special Cuvée comes from 39-year-old parcels on rock and sandy soils. Entirely unwooded, it’s a pithy, tangy, green pea and passionate fruit style, with vibrant, palate-cleansing acidity and a salty tang. 2021-23
Originating from 35-year-old vines rooted in sandy alluvial soil in the estates riverine area, this cuvée, or blend, is achieved by two pickings – one earlier in the harvest and another slightly later. Grown in the estate’s prime site for Sauvignon, this results in a complex wine, with a sensuous combination of passion fruit, nettles and minerality. Will mature beautifully for 2-4 years.
