in the vineyard : This wine is a 100% Sauvignon blanc made from grapes from L’Ormarins, Franschhoek - a warmer climate, and from Altima in Villiersdorp - a cooler climate, where the 2nd highest vineyards in South Africa are situated. Elandskloof also has very inty, granite soils. The warm climate offers good fruitiness and lovely tropical characters, while the cool climate
gives aromatics of green pepper and asparagus.
