Fryer's Cove, Sauvignon Blanc, Bamboes Bay, 2020

From an extraordinary, isolated 6 hectare vineyard on limestone subsoils just 800 metres from the Atlantic Ocean on the outskirts of Strandfontein, a village on the Atlantic coast 300 kilometres north of Cape Town. The micro-climate is unusual: very often the vines here are blanketed in a thick sea-fog, whilst only a few kilometers away inland the sun may be shining and the temperature torrid. This is a remarkably intense and ageworthy SB, a Cape Pouilly-Fumé: gooseberry, lime and passion-fruit, checked by steely minerality. Now-2024

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.

Friendly helpful people selling good quality interesting wines from many countries and at competitive prices. Wines you will NOT find in the supermarket! Free local delivery has been a boon during lockdown. What's not to love about SVS???
