Spice Route 'Amos Block' Sauvignon Blanc 2017
This wine is only bottled in exceptional vintages. The result is a wine with great aromatics and a certain “grain”, a true reflection of this special vineyard.
This wine has a wonderfully aromatic and energetic style, full of notes of gooseberries, nettles and minerality. It is bright and refreshing but with a lovely texture, making it more generous on the palate than you might expect.
Five centuries ago the ancient mariners braved uncharted seas to round the Cape of Good Hope in search of exotic spices. Their nerve and dash inspire the Spice Route philosophy. They have found this signature wine style in the rolling hills along the Cape’s West Coast, where unirrigated vines produce grapes with small thick skinned berries – ripe fruit that is dense, rich and full flavoured. A passionate dedication to exceptional quality and traditional hand crafting captures the essence of this fruit in the wines of the Spice Route.
