Ghost Corner Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Ghost Corner Sauvignon Blanc 2018

A unique Sauvignon blanc that cannot be compared to any other. Powerful concentrated layers of green figs and gooseberries, with a touch of grapefruit, fynbos and a steely minerality on the palate. A reflection of the cool maritime climate of Elim where the grapes are sourced. Lees contact during the winemaking process creates length and richness on the aftertaste, which will progress even more over the next 2 or 3 years.

This wine can stand its own against any great seafood or poultry dishes.
