Springfield Estate Miss Lucy White Blend 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

*Recommended by Fiona Beckett, The Guardian, February 2016* 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." Miss Lucy is one of the seven nicknames given to the Red Stumpnose by the fisherman of the Southern Cape. Like many other marine species, the Miss Lucy has been over-exploited and is now critically endangered. Created as an ode to the bounty of the sea, Miss Lucy can turn the many other delights safe to grace our tables, into a celebration of the ocean. Only a salty breeze and a sunny day can improve what is already a perfect match. This unique blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Pinot Gris bursts with citrus pamplemousse flavours and an ample mouth feel, yet remarkably moderate in alcohol. Drink now to 2017. “Springfield Estate’s Miss Lucy 2014, a gorgeous blend of sauvignon, semillon and pinot gris named after a local fish, rather than a favourite daughter, gives many oaked white bordeaux a run for their money; it’s low in alcohol, too, as are many of the country’s new-wave wines."

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
