Alinea Sauvignon Blanc 2021


100% Sauvignon Blanc

The vineyard is located in St Helena Bay on the Cape West Coast. These vines are deep rooted in sea sand and limestone soils. The grapes were harvested in the middle of February, and were gently wholebunch pressed. The juice was settled in tank overnight before being racked off the gross lees. The clean juice was taken to old 600L French oak barrels for fermentation, and then aged for 6 months.

Natasha Jacka’s background is in chefing, and like many ex-chefs, found herself falling in love with wine alongside food. In 2017, she decided to take a break from Cape Town’s kitchens, and worked her first harvest at Cape Point Vineyards, a definitive moment in her journey into wine. It was from there that she went on to study winemaking at Elsenburg, and then went on to bottle her first wine under the Alinea label in 2021.

Up until now, Natasha has been working with négoce fruit, but excitingly, has planted two small blocks (a co-planted white vineyard, and another with just Syrah) in Noordhoek, just a stone’s throw from the centre of Cape Town. Her first two wines tell a story of a curious winemaker bursting with passion and talent, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for her.
