The Weather Station Sauvignon Blanc 2022
Clear pale lemon colour with hints of green. The 2022 edition of the Weather Station displays pronounced green apple complimented by salty minerality and hints of kiwifruit. A lovely weight and round-mouth feel on the mid-palate, balanced natural acidity bringing with it freshness and length to the finish. Ready to drink now.
What’s in a name?
This Sauvignon Blanc was named The Weather Station, because the SB11 clone, which is one of the core components used in this wine, had a big resurgence in the 1970s in Stellenbosch; its apt Afrikaans name is ‘Weerstasie Kloon’ (Weather station clone). Its name derived from its location next to an old Weather Station, which is now the Stellenbosch Wine Campus.
