Our Sauvignon Blanc 2010 was labelled on the 13th October 2010 and is now ready for the general public. We will ship 2,400 bottles of the wine to the UK and it should arrive in the last two weeks of November. 2,000 bottles will be left in South Africa for sales there and also back up stock to go with our Chardonnay when that is ready in early 2011. So far tastings of our Sauvignon Blanc 2010 have received a big ‘thumbs up’. A big thanks to Fiona Phillips from Cybercellar in Franschhoek, Western Cape, (http://www.cybercellar.com) for saying she will sell our wines from day 1 and also helping us import our wines into the UK.
Friday the 6th of August 2010 is a momentous day in the history of Seven Springs Vineyard as it was the day we bottled our first ever wines, our 2010 Sauvignon Blanc. A total of 4,300 bottles of the wine were bottled at Iona Vineyards, www.iona.co.za, in Elgin. Our wines will spend a couple of weeks recovering from ‘bottle shock’, then be labelled and made available for sale within South Africa and the UK.
