Ashbourne Sandstone is an innovative white blend that reflects the terroir of sandstone soils in the most beautiful way possible. Clear wine with lots of fruit aromas such as lemon zest and yellow apples. Full and soft taste of lemon, blood orange and bergamot. With minerality and a natural acidity.
Ashbourne is located in the Heaven and Earth Valley at the southern tip of South Africa. There is a cool, maritime climate and the old soil is extremely rich in clay and iron. The winery makes terroir-driven wines with a focus on Sauvignon Blanc and Pinotage.
This wine follows a non-traditional vinification. The Chardonnay matures for 5 months in ceramic 'eggs', the Semillon for 5 months in neutral barrels and the Sauvignon Blanc in amphorae.
A perfect wine as an aperitif. A nice combination with oysters, gamba's and other seafood, but also with goats cheese or fish and light dishes with chicken or turkey.
