ZORGVLIET SILVER MYN SAUVIGNON BLANC
This is a small 200,000-bottle winery in Banghoek, on the Helshoogte Pass between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. It’s pronounced ‘Sorg-fleet’, which roughly translates to 'no worries', and that sentiment carries itself through all they do.
Winemaker Bernard Le Roux is a young and upcoming talent who is passionate about the estate’s vineyards as well as its cellar (not always a given for winemakers!). Grapes are grown on the steep slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in vineyards that are among the highest in Stellenbosch. The estate wines are from site-specific single vineyards and are elegant expressions of this unique mountain terroir, all crafted in the Zorgvliet cellar, one of the most technologically advanced cellars in South Africa. Five kilometres outside Stellenbosch nestled in the Banghoek Valley overlooking majestic mountain and vinyards you will find Zorgvliet Wine Estate. It is from this setting that one would only expect the highest quality of wine and that is what Silver Myn Sauvignon Blanc is.
Pale green with light straw hues. The nose is laden with gooseberry, green apple, and sweet melon with underlying mineral tones. Clean, crisp acidity with an abundance of tropical fruit showing on the palate. This is a perfect wine for just enjoying on its own or with light summer meals. Really worth a try.
