Naturally fermented Sauvignon Blanc. The bouquet shows enticing aromas of fleshy white pear and quince with an illusion of sweetness. The Sauvignon eschews varietal correctness in favour of waxy, smoky, toasty, ethereal flavours. Nine months barrel maturation gives a creamy, full-palate with beautiful length on the finish.

The extreme and mysterious landscape at the southernmost tip of Africa has been the inspiration for the Ghost Corner wines. More than 130 ships have found their last resting place in these treacherous waters where compass readings show no deviation between magnetic and true north and navigation was just about impossible on dark and stormy nights. Inland from this dramatic coastline, in the Elim Ward, lie the vineyards where David is making the most of excellent growing conditions, cooling south-easterly breezes and extreme climate. The deep lime-rich soil with plentiful slate and gravel deposits give rise to the exceptional Ghost Corner wines.
