Profile

Smell

This expressive Sauvignon Blanc has lively, fresh green fruit on the nose, along with passionfruit, guava, and white peach. There are notes of melon, kiwi fruit, and wet pebble followed with a hint of classic flintiness.

Taste

This crowd pleaser is more of an old world style - it is dry and has ripe and fruity flavours of lime, white peach, passionfruit, guava, and kiwi, with a touch of leafy green herbs, a flinty minerality, and a mouthwatering, juicy acidity. This Sauvignon Blanc is pure summer in a glass!

Pairing

Try this vibrant, flavourful white with a Greek salad with goat feta, chicken tacos, or a creamy risotto with fresh summer peas.

Aromas and Flavours

Grapefruit

As refreshing as aromas come, the smell of grapefruit is purely invigorating.

Peach

Fuzzy peach candies, or real-life fuzzy peaches fresh from a fresh B.C fruit stand.

Pear

A romantic picnic in the orchard, with your partner and their favourite white wine.

Pineapple

The sweet aroma of the tropics wafting from your glass - you can almost hear the waves crashing.

Melon

Sweet and fruity, with a particular flavour/scent that resembles persimmons

Description

Quando is a family business, with sixth generation brothers Fanis and Martin Bruwer taking over the running of their riverside property in 2004. The property is situated between Robertson and Bonnievale, in the picturesque Robertson Valley — one and a half hours east of Cape Town, South Africa. The winery is surrounded by the Langeberg and Riviersonderend mountains, with the Breede River running through. Only 12 hectares of their farm land is planted with Sauvignon Blanc, with the rest as a mixture of citrus and apricots with an alfalfa pasture for a local dairy herd. The manure from the cows is used to organically fertilize the vineyard! The brothers have a commitment to making only three wines for every vintage to give them the time to properly produce their quality wines.

The original Bruwer family comes from the Loire Valley of France. They arrived in South Africa in 1693, were winemakers in France and are, after multiple generations in South Africa, still vine growers and winemakers in Robertson.

Enjoy this wine chilled at 8 C, from now until 2022.
