Cape Winemakers Guild

Bartho Eksteen Vloekskoot Sauvignon Blanc – Wooded 2022

100% Sauvignon Blanc
Wine of Origin Upper Hemel-en-Aarde

  • This is the most successful Sauvignon Blanc in the CWG Auction history.
  • This wooded style was recently praised by Jancis Robinson MW as her favourite WHITE
    wine from the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.
  • A regular 5-star Platter’s winner.
  • A regular Tim Atkin MW 95+ award winner.

Tasting Notes: Nods towards Pessac-Léognan but has a Cape character all of its own. Flinty, grapefruit, fresh lime, green herb flavours. Focused, with superb intensity. Older oak adds complexity and gravitas.

If you can put away some bottles for a couple of years, you can delay the pleasure and have it back with interest for anything up to six years after harvest.

Winemaker: Bartho Eksteen
