This South African sauvignon blanc from Lanner Hill Farm is a force to be reckoned with. Full-bodied with a fresh crisp finish in the mouth, it’s not the kind of bottle you would open and pour without savouring every mouthful. There’s no blending of grapes from various vineyards here – all fruit is harvested from David Tullie’s farm on the crest of the Darling hills.
The grapes for Kumkani’s single vineyard range are grown in partnership with private, famil-owned farms, with each wine reflecting a specific terroir. Kumkani’s sauvignon blanc reveals the cool climate of its origins with notes of gooseberry and flint and a clear, fresh finish. Don’t leave so much as a drop in the bottle – every bit of this mature number should be tasted.
