Sarah displays flavours of bright summer fruit, which follows through to a smooth, balanced palate. Sarah is a blend of unwooded Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Viognier – the style of the wine is to highlight the fruit characters of the cultivars. Sarah Anne Buys is Dana’s middle daughter and this wine was named after her on her 16th birthday, following in the family tradition of Jess’ wine. A wonderful, light white wine for warm summer days and nights.

Intricate nose of white pears and tropical fruits. The fruit driven aromas follow through on the palate with a sweet honeydew finish.
The Sarah is a blend between the two origins – Chardonnay from Simonsberg-Paarl and Chenin blanc from Elgin. The Viognier is a combination from the two properties. The wine is fermented at low temperature in stainless steel tanks and spends a short amount of time on the lees. It does not undergo malolactic fermentation. The result is a well-balanced, fresh wine.
