FLAVOURS OF SUMMER
A glass of chilled Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect partner for a lingering lunch outdoors
IT’S KNOWN THAT regional climates can result in vastly different tasting notes within the same varietal, and Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc is no exception. Hailing from the southern slopes of nine vineyards in the Western Cape’s prime wine-growing region of Durbanville, this award-winning, characterful Sauvignon Blanc has long enjoyed a happy relationship with summer favourites, such as seafood, fish, pasta and salads.
The geography of the Durbanville area allows for cool, moist sea breezes that drift inland, and late-afternoon mists – ideal conditions for the slow ripening of quality grapes. The result is seamlessly layered fruit f lavours, from tropical papaya and grapefruit to fragrant guava and gooseberry, leading up to a crisp finish and a full mouthfeel. It’s the classic complement to beautiful food and sublime weather.
