CAPE POINT VINEYARDS ISLIEDH SAUVIGNON SEMILLON BLEND 2019. BUY 5 GET 1 FREE
The Cape Point Vineyards Isliedh 2019 is one of the Wines of the Year in Tim Atkin MW’s 2020, with a 96/100 rating. Isliedh Blend combines 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sémillon grape varieties. This white wine offers floral notes of white orchid, rose and peach blossom. Hints of floral oak spice combined with fresh thyme give the wine an extra layer of depth. The palate is rich, saline, full and textured with a long-lasting mineral finish. Cape Point Vineyards is a family-owned, female-driven vineyard that is uniquely located in Noordhoek on the Cape Peninsula of South Africa.
Cape Point Vineyards is uniquely located in the Cape Peninsula where it is set rather majestically against the slopes of the famous Chapman’s Peak mountain range and overlooks the nearby Atlantic Ocean – a mere 1-2km’s away. Cool sea breezes along with ancient mountain soils make for a unique terroir with a late growing season that results in a world class Sauvignon Blanc with minerals tones and great complexity.
Tim Atkins 96/100: Featuring the highest ever percentage of Semillon (26%) under Riandri Visser’s stewardship, this Sauvignon-dominated white is consistently among the best Bordeaux blends in the Cape. Wild yeast fermented in its entirety, it’s a stunning achievement, with scented, nuanced 30% new wood, notes of grapefruit pith and umami, a herbal undertone and saline, crunchy, mouth-watering acidity. 2022-27
Platter’s Rating 5-stars: A Cape classic, with 11 maximum 5-star ratings since 2003 debut.
