Winemaker Notes

The nose shows stunning complexity with fruit notes of ripe quince, passion fruit all intermingled with hints of lemon grass, toasted almonds and freshly baked brioche. The wine enters the palate full and rich reminiscent of the aromas on the nose.

Blend: 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
TA 95
Tim Atkin

Year in, year out, this is one of the best white blends in the Cape, made in a Pessac-Léognan style but with nuances that are all its own. Mealy, salty and subtly wooded, it combines Sauvignon Blanc with 30% Semillon to brilliant effect. Long and complex. 2019-25

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon, the 2016 Director's Reserve White begins with classic herbal and green pepper notes from the Sauvignon Blanc with underripe apricot and pineapple. The palate is mineral driven with a waxy, leesy texture, the Sémillon making its debut. It is well structured and complex with a long finish. It aged nine months on the lees in one-third new French oak.

Stellenbosch Wine

South Africa

South Africa’s most famous wine-producing district, Stellenbosch, surrounds the historic town with the same name; fine winemaking here dates back to the late 1600s. Its valleys of granite, sandstone and alluvial loam soils between the towering blue-grey mountains of Stellenbosch, Simonsberg and Helderberg have the capacity to produce beautiful wines from many varieties. The climate is warm Mediterranean, tempered by the cool Atlantic air of nearby False Bay.

Perhaps most well-known for its Pinotage and Bordeaux blends, Stellenbosch also produces noteworthy wines from Syrah, Chenin blanc, Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc. The district’s wards—Banghoek, Bottelary, Devon Valley, Jonkershoek Valley, Papegaaiberg, Polkadraai Hills and Simonsberg-Stellenbosch—all produce distinctive wines from vines with relatively low yields.

Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux White Blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. Popularized in Bordeaux, the blend is often mimicked throughout the New World. Somm Secret—Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but they can be served before, during or after a meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage.
