Sauvignon Blanc is our most in-demand white, loved by customers for its intense fruit flavors and mouthwatering freshness. Most wine fans have tasted the famous styles from New Zealand and France, but did you know there’s also top-quality Sauvignon coming out of South Africa?

Founded in 1702, the Louw family’s Diemersdal Estate produces some of the country’s finest Sauvignon Blanc. The winery is located in Durbanville, one of South Africa’s oldest regions. Vineyards benefit from red Hutton soils and a dry growing season, which force vines to bury their roots deep for nourishment (aiding in the development of complex flavors). There’s also sea breezes and cooling mists from the Atlantic Ocean, which help the fruit retain Sauvignon’s trademark zip and zing.

After selecting the best grapes from his family’s prime-sited vineyards, sixth-generation winemaker Thys Louw held back the fermentation until winter, which allowed for extra flavor complexity and freshness. Four months’ lees aging completed the recipe, adding a richer, mouthfilling texture to the Sauvignon Blanc’s vibrant tropical fruit and delicate mineral characters.

Whether you plan to enjoy it as an aperitif or pair it with food (goat cheese or seafood are classic matches), you simply must taste this fine Sauvignon Blanc. Order today.
