Trizanne Signature Wines Sondagkloof Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Western Cape
Combining skin and barrel-fermented components, with wild yeasts adding yet another dimension, this wine is showing incredible black current intensity, aromatic spices and passion fruit. The underlying minerality adds depth to this beautifully expressive Sauvignon Blanc.
Meet the wine-maker
"After graduating from Stellenbosch University with a degree in viticulture and oenology, I worked multiple vintages in Australia, France and Portugal. I then returned to home ground and joined the winemaking team at Klein Constantia. In 2004 I was offered the opportunity of starting Anwilka wines in conjunction with Klein Constantia role-players and Bordeaux winemakers. The four invaluable years at Anwilka and my international experience gave me the confidence to start my own brand, and in 2008 I went solo. Since the very first vintage my focus has always been on two very diverse wine regions, namely Elim and the Swartland.
I currently live in Kommetjie, a quaint village on the Southern Peninsula, and make my wines just down the road in Noordhoek. Apart from everything wine-related: making, judging on various panels or just straightforward drinking, I also make time to surf whenever I get the opportunity. I feel that the ocean recharges me, and teaches one patience and respect for nature."
