Pofadderbos Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage description

Strandveld Sauvignon Blanc is made from vines grown on a cool south-easterly facing slope of the Elim wine ward. Surrounded by local Elim fynbos this vineyard is known for its frequent encounters with Puffadder snakes, hence the name Pofadderbos. The unique terroir is beautifully expressed in this vineyard, grown in almost 100% yellow ferricrete rocky soils. The modest crop ripens slowly in our cool climate. A total of 8331 vines were planted on  3 ha of land in 2003.

Tasting Notes

  • Big tropical fruit flavours on the nose, creamy and full on the palate with an oyster shell minerality on the aftertaste and complemented by a lovely natural acidity.
