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
