Our Sauvignon Blanc is produced from higher, cooler vineyards in the Cape. Warrelwind (whirlwinds) are common in the vineyards throughout summer. The seasonal winds cool the grapes and turn the windmills dotting the landscape.
Vibrant with fresh acidity, MAN Sauvignon Blanc is wonderfully refreshing.
Fans of our Sauvignon Blanc regularly mention the lively bouquet and tropical fruit notes, which really make the wine stand apart from its often too green and grassy peers.
From the winemaker:
Our Sauvignon Blanc is one of the few wines where we bring in grapes from outside our growing region - fruit from the cooler, higher-elevation vineyard from Stellenbosch adds fruit intensity. The 10% Semillon also helps the wine age well in the bottle. As with all our wines, we only choose grapes with a very concentrated flavour, so you enjoy a refreshingly crisp wine with a generous bouquet of pineapple and lime.
All you need is a summer's afternoon and you're set. If you're peckish, try sushi, salads or fish dishes alongside a chilled glass of MAN Warrelwind Sauvignon Blanc.
