"HOLLEBAKSSTRANDFONTEIN" - The original name of the farm at Bamboes Bay. Translated from the Dutch, the name means a “hollow bin” and “beach fountain”. In earlier days, farmers in this arid area used it as source of fresh water for their livestock from this “fountain” down in this hollow.
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRINGS
Full-bodied yet invitingly fresh, the Hollebaksstrandfontein Sauvignon Blanc makes and excellent partner for a diverse variety of dished. From sweet West Coast crayfish to smoked salmon, roast chicken and creamy goat's cheese, the pairing possibilities are endless!
This lady is worth the wait. Due to the style, character and quality of Fryer’s Cove Bamboes Bay range, we believe that this limited production wine must be at least a year and half in bottle before release, only then does it show it’s real potential, continuing on for a further 5 to 7 years to reach its peak.
And as an added guarantee, our bottling and packaging team gives a signed endorsement individually on every carton they pack with their signature.
On the nose there is a distinctive seashell minerality with lemon, citrus and white flowers. The palate is rich and creamy, chalky and packed with unique inflections of kelp and West Coast Vygie fynbos that are so characteristic of the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. This wine is well balanced with a complex dry finish and lingering freshness. With flavours as bright as the sun cascading on the West Coast waves, it evokes the soothing sensation of being at the beach on a summer holiday.
