Altima is situated in Elandskloof, an isolated valley north of Villiersdorp which is 5km wide and is surrounded by a steep mountain range that rises 1km from the valley floor. The steep topography causes the valley to receive less direct sunlight due to the overshadowing mountains. This, t ogether w ith t he e levation o f 6 00 t o 8 50m results in an extraordinary cool climate for the valley. This unique terroir produces wines with a high natural acidity and upfront aromas. Grapes are harvested much later than other sites in the Western Cape, with harvest usually starting early in March. The vineyards produce an intense Sauvignon Blanc with a fresh expression of passion fruit, gooseberry, citrus and freshly cut grass.

Nose: A light flinty, gravel note underpins granadilla and grapefruit aromas on the nose.

Palate:  A Taut and zingy lemon and grapefruit vivacity is immediately apparent in the mouth. Adding to the complexity is a slate and mineral nuance. The palate is fresh and succulent with lively acidity

Finish: Unmistakably Sauvignon Blanc, this wine is focussed, crisp and balanced with good concentration, body and length of flavour.
