Style/Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Darling & Stellenbosch - South Africa
An expressive Sauvignon blanc with a light straw color. Pungent notes of lemongrass, green melon, and hints of kiwi, compliment the refreshing acidity, which tightly knit these fruit layers together. A remarkable expression of this unique terroir.
Ready to drink but will develop favourably in bottle for 3 to 5 years.

Three blocks from this immaculate farm were monitored and tasted weekly prior to harvesting. Each block was picked at a ripeness level where we found the fruit aromatics were best expressed. During fermentation these three parcels expressed aromatics, that reminded me so much of the 2020. Each block was kept separate and after meticulous tasting, two of the three blocks were selected for the Our Darling Pledge Sauvignon blanc 2021.
