About the Vineyards:
Silver MYn wines come from the Zorgvliet Estate in Banghoek Valley, a small subregion just 4 miles outside of Stellenbosh. The area is home dangerously steep land and you can still find leopards in the mountains. Grapes are grown on the dangerously steep slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in vineyards that are among the highest in Stellenbosch. You can even still find leopards in the mountains. The folks at Zorgvliet can handle it, though. In fact Zorgvliet, pronounced ‘Sorg-fleet’ means ‘no worries’.
About The Wine:
The grapes were crushed and destemmed and given 6 hours of skin contact before fermentation. After fermentation the wine was left on the fine lees for six months upon which it was clarified for bottling.
Food Pairing: Salads dressed with vinaigrette, rich seafood dishes and Thai food. Also enjoy with goats milk cheese.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Light yellow in color with hints of lime green, the nose shows intense goose- berry aromas with hints of tropical, citrus blossom and green fig. On the palate it is rich and mouth filling, has a creamy texture from the natural acidity and lees contact, and a lingering textured finish.
