Isliedh is created in a tight mineral style for enjoyment with great food which will reward for many years to come. The wine displays a complex array of limes, minerality, tropical fruit and spice which will be accompanied by secondary flavours over time. Cape Point Vineyards Isliedh can be best enjoyed over the next 5 years and possibly even 10.
Cape Point Vineyards is uniquely located in Noordhoek in the Cape Point Peninsula where our close proximity to the ocean and the ancient soils of the Table Mountain Range not only provides a phenomenal setting, but also a terroir ideal for the production of world-class Sauvignon Blanc that is strong in minerality and complexity.
“The 2013 Isliedh Sauvignon Blanc includes 18% Semillon and is raised in 50% new oak. There are touches of wild mint, nettle and Japanese yuzu infusing the citrus fruit that is very well defined. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, a fine mineralité here with a citric twist of lemon on the finish.”
