2021 Herd & Hart Western Cape Sauvignon Blanc
This Sauvy B is incredibly refreshing. It has bright citrus fruit and florals, but finishes off with a saltiness that gives it that touch of ocean sea breeze that reminds you it’s from the Western Cape.
Sustainable farming practices, minimal intervention winemaking, and only 112 cases produced.
The idea behind the Herd & Hart wines is to bring the beauty of the Cape to California. The project is a collaboration between Ernst Storm and the team at Argaux. We have worked with Ernst for over 7 years and this project pays tribute to his family’s heritage on the tip of Africa and the friendship we have built based on a passion for good wine, made by good people that are honoring their craft by respecting the earth and their surroundings.
The Herd & Hart wines are sourced from some of the best vineyards in the Western Cape thanks to the help of Ernst’s brother who is also a winemaker in South Africa. The old vines are situated on deposits of granite and shale soils. This combined with meticulous winemaking practices create exceptional wines that are unique to South Africa. We work with vineyards and wineries that follow sustainable farming and winemaking practices. These practices focus on farming in a way that protects the environment, conserves natural resources, and supports social responsibility while producing high-quality wines. Our vision is to enjoy the fruit of the vines and share it with others while protecting the best interests of our planet. These wines were made in South Africa, but bottled once they reached the California coast. This allowed us to reduce our carbon footprint by 40%!
