Laborie Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Full flavoured, crisp and well balanced - delicious as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to meals
In 1691, Laborie was granted to French Huguenot, Isaac Taillefert. Already the owner of the neighbouring Picardie, Taillefert placed Laborie in his son Jean’s name. Together, they set about clearing the bush and planting vines, and within seven years, were producing a drinkable wine. In fact, it was the opinion of a Frenchman, Leguat, who visited the Cape in 1698, that their wine was “the best in the colony and similar to our small wines of Champagne”. With their knowledge of French viticultural techniques, the Taillefert family laid a solid foundation of vineyards and outstanding wine production that is evident, over three hundred years later, in Laborie’s wines of distinction.
Aromas of bell pepper, fig and gooseberry, complimented by fresh minerality and hints of passion fruit. On the palate the wine is fresh, well balanced and concentrated with a crisp, lingering finish.
