- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: Duncan Savage, previously the winemaker at Cape Point Vineyards, introduced his own label in 2011 with a goal to produce classic and elegant wines. Through his time at Cape Point, Duncan grew to understand maritime vineyards, which led him to source grapes for Savage wines from maritime and high altitude sites around the Western Cape. These small, hand-selected parcels receive a lot of care and attention throughout the growing season. Each vineyard's unique terroir contributes in its own special way to the blends.
TASTING NOTES: Beautifully complex and intense, the aromatics show notes of freshly cut fennel, yellow baking apples, waxy lemon peel and hints of fresh wet thatch. On the palate, it's just as impressive with nervy, pithy yellow grapefruit peel zest, white citrus spice, tangerine and peach liquor nuances on the saline finish.
