Black Elephant VintnersTwo Dogs, a Peacock and a Horse 2020
The fruit for the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc was selected from four vineyards around the Franschhoek Valley, each site contributing a different flavour profile to the final blend as it grows on diverse soil types and slopes. Each vineyard is therefore handled separately to capture its unique personality.
The wine is translucent with a bright green hue. The nose is opulent with aromas of melon, granadilla, pear, citrus and litchi. The palate is lively and concentrated with flavours of tropical fruits, gooseberry, creamy richness from the extended lees contact and lingering with fresh acidity and minerality.
