Gabriëlskloof Sauvignon Blanc



Winemaker’s Notes:

The Sauvignon blanc is part of our Gabriëlskloof Range, together with the Rosebud, Chenin blanc, The Blend and Syrah. This range offers a selection of boutique-style wines that always over-deliver on quality and value.

The 2020 vintage was about two weeks earlier than previous years. Cool conditions during harvest made for fresh, crisp wines.

The Sauvignon blanc 2020 was fermented wild in stainless steel tanks and left on its lees for seven months before bottling.

Gabriëlskloof winery is in the Bot River ward, part of the greater Walker Bay region. Our winemaking philosophy is one of minimal intervention, only taking action where necessary. We believe this is the only way to give prominence to and reflect the terroir of the vineyards we work with.

Intense aromas of pear, lemongrass, lime zest, flint and blackcurrant on the nose. The palate is medium bodied and concentrated with a long elegant and refreshing finish. Best enjoyed at 13˚C. Drink in the next two years.



Gabrielskloof Wines

While Bernhard Heyns was still living in Johannesburg - he had a dream of starting a wine farm from scratch. In 2001, his dream started to become a reality when he bought a Canola farm in Bot River. He saw its potential to produce excellent quality wines and started growing vines in 2002 - their first vintage was in 2008.Gabrielskloof is a family-run business. Bernhard's daughter Nicolene is married to Peter-Allan Finlayson who owns Crystallum wines. Peter-Allan joined the Gabrielskloof team as winemaker in 2014 and he has been making beautiful elegant wines for them ever since his first vintage in 2015.
TEAM: Peter-Allan Finlayson is the head winemaker at Gabrielskloof. He is the son of Peter Finlayson, the Pioneer of Pinot Noir who founded Bouchard Finlayson and, like his father, he has a passion for making wine and has proven to be exceptional at it. Nicolene is involved with the business side of Gabrielskloof and together with an excellent team, she ensures that visitors to the farm are very well looked after.
LOCATION: Gabrielskloof is located just after the Bot River turn-off from the N2 between Elgin and Hermanus. There are two main soil types on the farm – sandstone and shale and the wines produced are a reflection of the terroir. They farm sustainably and aim to protect and preserve the environment as much as possible.
