Baleia Sauvignon Blanc

Pale, greenish gold. Reflecting classic aromas of elderberry flower and green fig on the nose and crisp, green litchi flavours on the palate.

Lovely juicy, tropical fruits such as litchi, forrel pear and a hint of sea mist. The lush balanced palate entertains with
granadilla, guava and a Prickly pear

Baleia’s food-driven wines present a delicate sensation of minerality which is expressed by natural salts found in the soils and prepares the palate beautifully.

WINEMAKING PHILOSOPHY

Making Sauvignon Blanc one is often faced with the temptation of making something frivolous, upfront
and flirty which results in very upfront wines that lack a sense of place. With Baleia, we have chosen to take the road less travelled by choosing texture and minerality from the site to portray the beauty of the terroir

VINEYARD PHILOSOPHY

Baleia believes that living soils = strong roots = healthy vines = perfectly ripened fruit. We believe that
through science and meticulous farming with attention to the details, we can produce grapes that
truly reflect the terroir in which they are grown.

TECHNICAL DETAILS
Grown in pure limestone soil with extremely high mineral content, which results in a lively wine layered
with fine structure.

Established in 2009 by the Joubert family, their winemaking style is inspired by the Mediterranean climate. Their ethos is to create wines that reflect the unique terroir and elements of their remarkable location. In fact, Baleia is the only winery on the Lower Duiwenhoksrivier in Vermaaklikheid in the southern coastal area of the Cape. Baleia is Portuguese for whale and the striking labels are inspired by St. Sebastien Bay, the Whale Nursery of South Africa.

Discover a place of whales and wonder, where wines are born from rocky limestone soil in a remote and
unspoilt corner of the Cape South Coast. Here vines overcome fierce elements to create fruit with singular
character and depth of flavour. Beyond evocative wine, Baleia is also about finding harmony between self,
others and nature in pursuit of life’s perfect equilibrium
