Springfield Estate 'Life From Stone' Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Brother and sister team Abrie and Jeanette Bruwer are the complete opposite of your typical university trained have-cultured-yeast-will-travel flying winemakers. Their wines are all about their rocky, unforgiving terroir in Robertson and stand head and shoulders above most producers for sheer quality. Their obsession is reflected in Abrie's philosophy; "I only want to sell wine I am proud of and I will only get a limited number of chances to do that in my life." This single vineyard originates from the rockiest soil on the estate, with resultant struggling vines and huge concentration. Brilliant greenish in appearance, this is a dramatic wine full of ripe red peppers and passion fruit. It will mature to perfection within one year, into flavours of mineral and flint (gun smoke). Drink now to 2017.

Springfield Estate is a winery located in Robertson Valley in the Western Cape of South Africa that has been in the Bruwer family (descendants of Bruères of the Loire, France) for four generations. The grapes for these handcrafted wines are grown in lime-rich soils with rocky, clay and sandy elements. The nearby Breede River acts as a climate moderator, cooling the vineyards in the heat of summer to balance the fruit. Their motto: “from the grape to the bottle with care and passion.” The estate specializes in Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux blends and Pinot Noir.  Read less

Not as great as the Life from Stone, but all thats available. Suffers from being in the shadow of the much better Life from Stone.

An estate-grown South African Sauvignon Blanc that year after year knocks our socks off.
