Light straw yellow in colour. A gorgeous blend of Sauvignon, Semillon and Pinot Gris named after a local fish, rather than a favourite daughter, gives many oaked white Bordeauxs' a run for their money; This unique blend bursts with wonderfully enticing lime, white peach and especially grapefruit as well as quite pretty top notes of nettles and fynbos. The palate shows good, in fact great fruit concentration and really zippy acidity , yet is remarkably vibrant on the finish.

Set in the heart of the mountain-ringed Robertson Valley in South Africa's Western Cape Province, Springfield Estate is a vibrant, family-run wine farm. It is owned by the Bruwer family, fourth-generation wine farmers and ninth-generation descendants of the Bruères, French Huguenots who came to South Africa from the Loire in 1688 with bundles of vines under their arms. The present owners of Springfield, brother-and-sister team Abrie and Jeanette Bruwer, are just as dynamic and enthusiastic as their ancestors and are prepared to take risks to do what they love best – making wine. The real magic of Springfield lies in the bottles of hand-crafted wine it produces, true gems of tradition, which offer both quality and individuality in keeping with the estate's motto: from the grape to the bottle with care and passion.
