Tasting Notes

360° is created in a style for enjoyment with great food, starting off with an expression of a lime green tinge. Emanating from the glass are wonderful flavour combinations of Khaki bush, peas, asparagus with some beautiful ripe green fig flavours, and flinty herbal accents. The palate gives exceptional richness, with ripe fig flavours and a hint of fennel leading to a powerful, crisp finish

Blend Information

100% Sauvignon Blanc

In The Vineyard

You will find this 8 year old vineyard on Zevenwacht's most elevated position 340 metres above sea level, south facing straight on to False Bay. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes from this sight derive the full benefit from the cool sea breeze during the ripening stages, pungency, aroma and full concentration, the hallmark of this fine Sauvignon Blanc. There is no shortage of these characteristics developed on these lofty southern slopes of Zevenwacht.

GPS CO-ORDINATES: S 33° 43¹ E 18° 83¹
At this point you have a 360° view of the Zevenwacht Wine Farm and surroundings from Table Mountain, Cape Point, False Bay (Seal Island), Gordons Bay, the Stellenbosch Wine Route, the Wellington area right around to the West Coast ending with Robben Island.

About The Harvest

This versatile and complex variety has really come up trumps for the team. "This year we will be making two Sauvignon Blanc wines again. The usual flagship will be a blend from the best sites on Zevenwacht, while the second stunner 360°, will be in very limited amounts from a specially earmarked block of Sauvignon Blanc on the farm."
Only 1000 x 6 bottle cases will be produced.
