Situated high on the western rim of the cool-climate Elgin Valley and owned by James and Stuart Downes, Shannon Vineyards produce three highly-acclaimed site-specific wines, all with names taken from geographical features along the mountain range above the vineyards. One of the three is the Shannon Vineyards Sanctuary Peak Sauvignon Blanc. Ever since the release of the maiden 2008 vintage, the Shannon Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc has garnered widespread praise and shown itself as a wine to be reckoned with, and James Downes is extremely happy with the 2016 Sanctuary Peak.
Tasting notes: The supremely elegant, multi-layered Shannon Vineyards Sanctuary Peak Sauvignon Blanc is beautifully poised with the Sauvignon’s zesty acidity and vibrancy balanced by a 10% component of barrel-fermented Semillon (wild ferment and three months in new French oak) adding richer notes, a fuller mouth feel and complexity to the wine, making the wine approachable at an earlier age whilst also ensuring a great backbone for ageing potential. Distinctive primary fruit aromas of citrus, pear, white peach and blackcurrant, with a touch of fynbos and a flinty mineral lift, follow onto an expansive yet refined palate exhibiting excellent fruit purity and a juicy texture with enduring length.
Food pairing: This food-friendly wine is a perfect match for sushi, tempura prawns or seared tuna. It will also pair well with a spicy chicken salad and even matches up well to a touch of curry.
Retail price: Shannon Vineyards Sanctuary Peak Sauvignon Blanc 2016 retails nationally between R115 and R125.
