Facing: South

David Nieuwoudt (of Cederberg fame) has been in Elim, on the southern-most tip of Africa, since 2007 when he first spotted the areas huge potential. A small and promising maritime region within the Cape Agulhas district, Elim has two key things in common with Cederberg: a cool climate, and wilderness protection. So named after the 130 ships who found their last resting place in the treacherous waters of this extreme and mysterious landscape, Ghost Corners outstanding white wines have pioneered a new style for South Africa. The Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc (named for the fact that fermentation takes place thanks to naturally occurring yeast)  turns heads at every corner for its complexity, finesse and nine months barrel maturation which gives a creamy, full palate with beautiful length.
