Wine information
Benguela Cove is situated in the Walker Bay sub-region, just an hour from Cape Town International Airport. Poised on the edge of the Bot River Lagoon, the area is teeming with bird life and natural fauna and flora with the Atlantic Ocean gracing the horizon. The estate, which has 70-hectares of vines, was purchased by entrepreneur Penny Streeter OBE in 2013. The estate has been rewarded for its craftsmanship, led by experienced cellar master Johann Fourie. This Sauvignon opens with aromas of citrus and stone fruit and more delicate nuances of pear and smoke that linger. Tangy, mouth-filling and refreshing, this style takes you right to the ocean’s edge where you can smell the salt in the air.

Robin says "A pretty Sauvignon Blanc that displays similar flavours to its Backbone label but with a bit more concentration and depth. This fresh wine would make a tasty apéritif or nicely accompany lighter meals."
