With a history dating back to the 1700s, Le Bonheur Wine Estate epitomises the rich heritage of Stellenbosch. Historically “Le Bonheur” (meaning happiness) was a resting place for travellers and traders, offering lush green surroundings and natural spring waters. It is situated along the slopes of the Klapmuts Hill in the northern reaches of the Simonsberg Mountain, in the Stellenbosch Wine of Origin district. "Klapmuts" is the old Dutch word for the 18th century cocked hat that folded away into the saddle back pocket and, indeed, when observed from a distance, the hill resembles such a hat. Today the estate retains its sense of place, timeless setting and rich heritage and has become the sister property to L'Avenir Estate. This crisp and zesty Sauvignon Blanc is produced from two vineyards, giving complexity and rounded characteristics. Citrus notes and fresh peas follow ripe tropical flavours, and there is a real vibrant acidity that creates a lasting mouthfeel. This is a perfect pick-me-up or start to a meal to rev the tastebuds.
Robin says "Part of the Family Crest series, The Weather Blocks is a fresh Sauvignon Blanc that lies nicely between a New World style brimming with tropical fruit flavours and an Old World wine with elegance and grace. Finishes on a gentle salty tang."
