The Black Oystercatcher 2015 Sauvignon Blanc will be officially released at the Sauvignon Blanc and Oyster Festival. The festival takes place on 26 and 27 December at the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant.
The Black Oystercatcher is based close to the most southerly tip of Africa, a region that is specifically renowned for its Sauvignon Blanc. The unique landscape where the vines grow is crucial in creating the distinctive taste – including the intense fruit flavours, the minerality and the elegance associated with the Black Oystercatcher Wines.
According to Black Oystercatcher founder, Dirk Human, the 2015 Sauvignon Blanc vintage captures these distinct elements, along with the gooseberries on the palate, and the ripe lingering after tones. “Our 2015 vintage is full and ripe, and we believe that it really captures not only our very special terroir, but also our goals and aspirations as winemakers at the Black Oystercatcher.”
The Black Oystercatcher vineyards grow in an area believed to have been part of Antarctica some 900 million years ago. As a result, there are four soil types that shape not only the region’s wines, but also the immense biodiversity found here. The vineyards also enjoy constant cool winds from the ocean – which keep the berries small and compact, leading to the intense fruit flavours and notable minerality.
The 2015 Sauvignon Blanc will be available from the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant only, until the end of January. After this, it will be available from the online shop and will be on shop shelves.
