From the House of Mandela - The wines are not just about the juice in the bottle. They are the story of the House of Mandela and the story of the rainbow nation of South Africa. Lineage and maintaining our legacy plays an important part of our story, and incorporating wine into the House of Mandela is our way of claiming who we are, where we come from and belong. It is a way of paying homage not only to our father and grandfather, but also honoring our ancestors

House of Mandela – Thembu Tribute – Sauvignon Blanc

About the wine

The colour is light and clear with only a hint of green. With a delightful combination of citrus and tropical fruit flavours, the taste is beautifully intense and complemented by a good structure that concludes in a crisp, mineral finish.

White Grapes

100% Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaking process

The grapes were harvested during the early morning hours and brought into the cellar. The bunches were destemmed and lightly crushed before receiving approximately six hours of skin contact to extract enough flavours from the skins. The grapes were pressed using a membrane press and yeast was added to the clear juice. The fermentation process was maintained at temperatures ranging between 14 and 16°C and lasted 13 days.
