Estate Notes

A really classy South African Sauvignon Blanc from the makers of famed Hamilton Russell estate.

Named after the rare Southern Right whales from the bay nearby, this small, quality-led operation is now making big waves. Given the cool maritime location it is essentially Old World in style with lovely defined minerality and purity. And if you need any more reason to buy this benchmark wine, then it must be noted that for every bottle sold, the estate will donate to the conservation of the whales.

Reviews

“...offers attractive gooseberry, nettle and light chalky scents on the nose that opens nicely with aeration. The palate is balanced with crisp acidity, a touch of spice on the tip of the tongue on the entry, nettle and gooseberry laced with ginger towards the vivacious finish with just a hint of asparagus on the aftertaste." erobertParker.com
