            [Notes2] => 
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => The Reserve white wine consists of only two old 500L barrels; a single barrel of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon respectively. Using the more sun-exposed Sauvignon fruit, this wine manages to create tension between power and elegance. An integrated, bright, medium-bodied wine with its generosity held in check by an elegant mineral structure. Awarded 91 points by Christian Eedes (www.winemag.co.za) the Reserve Sauvignon Blanc Semillon also received 4.5 Stars at the RisCura White Hot Wine Awards 2014.
            [MediaNotes] => 
            [ServingSuggestion] => 
            [WineMakingNotes] => Grapes were sourced from the incredible ward of Lower Duivenshok River -
situated between Riversdale, Vermaaklikheid and Heidelberg - within the
Cape South Coast region. Limestone soils, cool mean ripening temperatures
and only 10km from the ocean - creates a beautiful, mineral Chardonnay.
The grapes were harvested in the 3rd week of Feb, whole bunch pressed and
fermented naturally in partly new, 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels.
No MLF. Bottled after 11 months in oak.

                    [Notes4] => After graduating from Stellenbosch University with a degree in viticulture and oenology, I worked multiple vintages in Australia, France and Portugal. I then returned to home ground and joined the winemaking team at Klein Constantia. In 2004 I was offered the opportunity of starting Anwilka wines in conjunction with Klein Constantia role-players and Bordeaux winemakers. The four invaluable years at Anwilka and my international experience gave me the confidence to start my own brand, and in 2008 I went solo. Since the very first vintage my focus has always been on two very diverse wine regions, namely Elim and the Swartland.

I currently live in Kommetjie, a quaint village on the Southern Peninsula, and make my wines just down the road in Noordhoek. Apart from everything wine-related. making, judging on various panels or just straightforward drinking, I also make time to surf whenever I get the opportunity.  I feel that the ocean recharges me, and teaches one patience and respect for nature.

About this product +

Producer >

Trizanne Barnard cut her teeth at the world-famous Klein Constantia winery.  But since 2008 she's been making her own path in the wine world with Trizanne Signature Wines. Focusing on the regions of Elim on the southernmost tip of the Western Cape and by contrast, the hot, dry climate of Swartland.

Winemaking >

Grapes were sourced from the incredible ward of Lower Duivenshok River - situated between Riversdale, Vermaaklikheid and Heidelberg - within the Cape South Coast region. Limestone soils, cool mean ripening temperatures and only 10km from the ocean - creates a beautiful, mineral Chardonnay. The grapes were harvested in the 3rd week of Feb, whole bunch pressed and fermented naturally in partly new, 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels. No MLF. Bottled after 11 months in oak.
