Catchpole & Co Sassy Sauvignon Blanc 2016
“Elegant in appearance, naughty by nature. Micro-site Sauvignon Blanc from cool-climate Elgin.”
World-class Sauvignon Blanc made from a tiny single-plot in an ideal position for this varietal. With potential production too small to satisfy modern retailers, the owners (Shannon Vineyards) were planning to blend the wine away. That would have been a crime. Elgin Sauvignon Blanc has the advantage of cool maritime winds blowing off the South Atlantic Ocean, ensuring a long, slow, flavour-intensifying ripening period. The introduction of gorgeous aromas will draw you in, but the complex palate will leave you wanting more. Incredibly well-structured, with perfectly balanced distinct and concentrated flavours. This is cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc at its best. Only 460 bottle available.
