Rustenburg Stellenbosch Sauvignon Blanc

Grown at some of the highest altitudes that vineyards are grown at in the Stellenbosch region; just over 550m above sea level, right against Simonsberg Mountain. The cooling effect of altitude and the oceanic breeze blowing off False Bay and Table Bay which are both within line of sight of the vineyards, combined with the vineyards being planted on West facing slopes make this ideal to produce a full flavoured, more tropical style, Sauvignon Blanc. Made without the influence of oak the wines are aged on their lees for further palate weight and complexity to balance out the wines’ natural acidity

Back Story & Wine Information

Originally granted in 1682 to a German settler, Rustenberg farm was bought by Peter and Pamela Barlow in 1941. They produce roughly 120 000 bottles annually from mainly red Bordeaux grape varieties cultivated in the rich Stellenbosch soils at the foot of the majestic Simonsberg Mountain. The force behind the 21st century renewal is Simon Barlow, son of Peter and Pamela. Simon considers himself to be a custodian of the farm, and is driven by his vision of “absolute passion and total dedication to quality in both the vineyard and cellar”. Today production is closer to 900 000 bottles.
