Indaba Sauvignon Blanc has enticing citrus and tropical fruit aromas that lead to fresh, zesty flavours of pineapple, lemon-lime, mango and green fig, supported by a spine of racy acidity. Herbal undertones shine through on the mineral-tinged finish.

Indaba Sauvignon Blanc grapes were sourced from select vineyard sites in Paarl-Perdeberg (52%), Slanghoek (33%), Philadelphia (8%), Breedekloof (4%) and Stellenbosch (3%), characterised mainly by calcareous red Karoo clay and decomposed granite soils. Vines range in age from 8-28 years. Approximately 20% of the vines were dry farmed, low-yielding bush vines. Grapes from the cooler coastal regions bring a zesty citrus and herbal character, while warm climate fruit imparts a tropical fruit profile and a fuller texture.

The grapes were harvested in the cool early morning hours, then crushed and gently pressed. After the juice was chilled and settled, it was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. The Indaba Sauvignon Blanc was aged on its lees for three months before blending and bottling.

From Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
Very pale straw. Flowers, stone fruits and a tropical hint on the soft, welcoming nose. Lush, broad and slightly sweet (4.5g/l residual sugar) with lime and mango flavours given shape by ripe, harmonious acidity. A "warmer" blend of many sites. Slightly saline on the finish. 87 Points
