Winemakers from South Africa’s premier cool-climate winemaking region of Durbanville will unveil the latest vintage of its collaborative Sauvignon Blanc within days.

As with its previous two iterations, the 2024 Durbanville Sauvignon Blanc pooled the champion talents of the region’s renowned wine growers and winemakers. As such, it has become a South African super Sauvignon Blanc with the 2024 release eagerly awaited.

 

Its first big public showing will be at the Durbanville Sauvignon Soirée on May 3 – appropriately, when the world celebrates International Sauvignon Blanc Day.

This year, a total of 10 wine farms contributed fruit from their best vineyards for its making.

 

Fruit was received from Diemersdal and De Grendel as well as Bloemendal, D’Aria, Durbanville Hills, Groot Phesantekraal, Klein Roosboom, Maastricht, Meerendal and Nitida.

 

Perfect for friends

The region’s global reputation particularly for Sauvignon Blanc was underscored last year when it was chosen as one of the hosts for the Concours Mondial du Sauvignon – the first time in history that the Sauvignon Blanc-focussed championship was held outside Europe.

The 2024 Durbanville Sauvignon Blanc sells for R120 and is available for purchase from the participating wineries.
