360° is created in a style for enjoyment with great food, starting off with an expression of a lime green tinge. Emanating from the glass are wonderful flavour combinations of Khaki bush, peas, asparagus with some beautiful ripe green fig flavours, and flinty herbal accents. The palate gives exceptional richness, with ripe fig flavours and a hint of fennel leading to a powerful, crisp finish.
In The Vineyard
Once again an outstanding year for Sauvignon Blanc 2010 360° vineyard.
Following in the footsteps of 2009 – the 360º Sauvignon Blanc vineyards did not disappoint. 2010 has been an outstanding year for our Sauvignon Blanc. You will find this 10year old vineyard on Zevenwacht's most elevated position 340 meters above sea level, south facing straight on to False Bay. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes from this sight derive the full benefit from the cool sea breeze during the ripening stages, pungency, aroma and full concentration, and the hallmark of this fine Sauvignon Blanc. There is no shortage of these characteristics developed on these lofty southern slopes of Zevenwacht.
