2022 Ashbourne, Sandstone, Hemel-en-Aarde Valley
This is an innovative white blend that captures the expression of the sandstone-derived soils in the
Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. The focus of the wine is on bright minerality, salinity and vibrant natural acidity, coated by a full and gentle viscosity derived from a unique endemic yeast and the method of vinification. Nearly three decades of family experience have gone into this blend.

Ashbourne Sandstone is the first South African wine to undergo fermentation and aging in amphorae.
The vinification process involves treating each component separately. The Sauvignon Blanc undergoes fermentation in Terracotta Amphorae, Nombot Egg, and Ceramic Egg for 5 months. The Semillon is aged in neutral oak barrels for the same duration, while the Chardonnay experiences fermentation in Terracotta Amphorae and neutral oak barrels for 5 months.
The blend composition consists of 51% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Semillon, and 24% Chardonnay, all sourced from the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.
