Salt River Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Salt River Sauvignon Blanc
Flavours of orange blossom and grapefruit with lovely mineral tension and a fresh saline finish. While Salt River Sauvignon Blanc will age beautifully in bottle over the next few years, the idea is to pull the cork and enjoy.

In 2019 we happened to stumble upon a 32 year old block of bush vine Sauvignon Blanc in Stellenbosch. This beautiful vineyard has been the inspiration for Salt River.
As production grows, so our search continues for interesting parcels that break the norm in terms of traditional Sauvignon sites. Salt River is in the heart of the city of Cape Town, reminiscent of Shoreditch in London a few years back. It also happens to be the home of Savage Wines.
The Sauvignon Blanc is fermented in a combination of stainless steel tanks, concrete eggs and old barrels. The wine spends four months on lees before being bottled,
followed by a further two months in bottle prior to release.
