Sauvignon Blanc | Semillon, Creation Wines

South Africa, Walker Bay

Light straw-yellow in colour, with glints of green. The invigorating, salty bouquet, reminiscent of the fresh sea breezes caressing our vineyards, is complemented by delightful hints of green fig. All in all a unique, terroir-expressive Bordeaux-style white.”

Producer

When in 2002 Jean-Claude (JC) and Carolyn Martin took up the challenge of establishing a winery in a remote corner of the Walker Bay Wine Region, they did so with the courage of their conviction. The 40 hectares of undulating land on the lofty Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge had never been planted to vines before, but recognising the vast potential, they set out with tenacity and determination to transform it into a model wine farm. No easy feat, but then the Swiss-born JC and South African-born Carolyn (née Finlayson) both come from wine pioneering stock spanning at least three generations and two continents!

Food Match

Recommended with fresh oysters and strawberry salsa, seafood bisque or bouillabaisse.

In the press

Jean-Claude Martin combines Sauvignon Blanc with 20% Semillon in this lightly wooded, Bordeaux-style white blend. The 2017 release may dispense with the latter grape, but it definitely adds interest here: jasmine and fresh herb notes with creamy lees and a pithy,grapefruity tang.
