2017 LEIPZIG SAUVIGNON BLANC WHITE VEGAN WINE
The name, Leipzig, is from the German “city of music”, where the forefathers of this estate stem from. The section of land that is now known as Leipzig was originally bought by Mrs Alida Smit, who was born on the neighbouring farm. The youngest daughter of Alida and Francois Smit, Alida Bester runs the farm today. Alida Bester, along with her husband, Vian, maintain a truly lovely wine venue. Vian, who explained the history of the farm and their wines while we tasted them was an absolute pleasure to meet.
Vitis Vinifera Award 2017 – Gold
Having used our own Sauvignon Blanc grapes for the 2013 & 2014 editions of this wine, we decided to move in a completely different direction in 2015, 2016 & 2017. We sourced 5.42 tons of Sauvignon Blanc grapes from Diemersdal in Durbanville and 2.4 ton from the Elim region along the Cape South Coast.

Fresh and crisp with wonderful tropical flavours of guava and pineapple on the nose. It exhibits a distinct minerality on the palate typical of cool climate grapes.
