Dazzling fresh Cape Sauvignon from a highly awarded family. South Africa's sun-blessed western coast has gained a terrific reputation for its zingy Sauvignons and Halfway is a perfect example. It sings with bright tropical fruit and crisp elegance.
The vineyards of this excellent estate have been in the family for generations, but the modern cellar is new, winning Double Gold in the first vintage. It lies in the Breede River Valley, a region renowned not only for fruity wines, but also for raising champion horses. In fact, the family have specialised in both for years. Halfway is a zesty Sauvignon that commemorates a split in the family. One brother wanted to breed horses, the other grow vines. To establish the estate’s halfway point they each rode to the opposite perimeter, then galloped as fast as they could. Their meeting point became the dividing line. No hard feelings though and today’s owners are keen equestrians still. A crisp white, ideal solo, with seafood or spicy dishes.
"One of our Laithwaites favourites. A classic South African Sauvignon – edgey with citrus"
