De Grendel Sauvignon Blanc .750L Western Cape South Africa


Pale straw in color with youthful lime green flashes around the edges, aromas of grapefruit, guava, and granadilla are underscored by rich, balanced fruit flavors and a long aftertaste.

The Sauvignon Blanc is more tropical and fruit-driven than the Koetshuis. It’s made from grapes grown in a vineyard which benefits from the cooling effect of gentle maritime breezes from the nearby ocean where the cold Benguela current runs northwards up the coast.

Pale straw in color, with youthful lime green flashes around the edges, you will notice aromas of grapefruit and other tropical fruits like guava and granadilla and enjoy its clean, fresh and zippy tastes with bags of richly flavoured, beautifully balanced fruit and long aftertaste.

Our distinctive position

Perfectly situated on high, sea-facing slopes, it is the only vineyard in the country that is 350m above sea level and only 7 km from the sea. This elevated position is not only majestic, but also forms an integral part of the micro-climate that shapes our elegant wines. Our vines benefit from the western-facing aspect and the close moderating effects of the ocean – advantages that are the product of the site. In our viticulture and wine-making, our goal is the expression of the character of this distinctive position.

Sensitivity to our environment

Looking after the natural environment, the farm is part of a larger fynbos conservation area, caring for the endemic but highly endangered “renosterveld”. Our social environment is being protected by employer-employee partnerships in winemaking and viticulture. In all we pursue, we aim for excellence, now and in the future.
