2020 Snakes & Ladders Sauvignon Blanc, Thorne & Daughters, Swartland

Just the second vintage of this, an astonishing Sauvignon Blanc from the Skurfberg. John found out about the vineyard from Chris Alheit: when Chris mentioned it, he assumed he meant Chenin, as it’s from the same farm as Magnetic North. In fact, it’s a parcel of 27 year old Sauvignon vines, that produce minuscule yields. It is wonderfully complex, with notes of blackcurrants and exotic fruit, and then a hit of lemongrass and ginger. Focussed yet textured, it’s South Africa’s most extraordinary Sauvignon Blanc.
