Rickety Bridge Sauvignon Blanc is a vibrant and zesty example of this well-known grape variety, with aromas of gooseberry and passion fruit layered with subtle mineral tones. There's loads of flavour here and a rich palate which makes for a satisfying glass of wine that's great with all sorts of foods from sushi to bright summery salads.

This historic Franschhoek estate was formed out of one of the original farms that was granted to the Huguenots when they settled here, and it was first planted with vines in 1797 when it passed to Paulina De Villiers. The estate nestles against the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains, close to the Franschhoek River that the old rickety bridge used to cross. The lower flatlands are covered by sandy soils while the hillsides are made up decomposed granite, ideal for red grapes. In 2000, British businessman Duncan Spence acquired the estate and there has been extensive investment to create a modern cellar, which is currently overseen by Mari Kotze.

Grapes are sourced from vineyards in Franshhoek, Cape Agulhas and Botriver. Fermentation takes place in a stainless-steel tank at 15°c to retain the fresh characteristics. The wine is left on its primary lees for six months, being stirred once a week to enhance flavour and mouth-feel.
